Describe the research project

Best Practice: 

The research project description should contain the following information:

  • Who: project personnel (principal investigator, researchers, technicians, others)
  • Where: location and description of study site or sites
  • When: range of dates for the project
  • Why: rational for the project (abstract)
  • How: description of project methods

Other useful information might include the project title, the overarching project (if any), institution(s) involved, and source of funding.

Description Rationale: 

The project description provides essential background information and context for the dataset.
