At the outset of the collaboration, we established seven key governing principles for our collaborative endevour.

  • Collaborate in an environment of honesty, fairness and trust.
  • Promote early-career researchers.
  • Respect other groups’ data.
  • Operate transparently with a goal of no surprises.
  • Seek permission from each group to use results prior to public release.
  • Do not share another group’s results with other parties without permission.
  • We should not inhibit any work being done within an individual group (or between pairs of groups, etc).
