NEEScomm (NEES Community and Communications) facilitates the use of the NEES Equipment Sites and establishes data archiving and sharing policies for all data submitted to and archived in the NEES Data Repository. The NEES Data Repository is also known as the Project Warehouse. The building of this resource requires a partnership between the researchers conducting the projects, the Equipment Sites providing technical and logistical support and NEEScomm as administrator for the Project Warehouse and NEEShub. By participating in NEES repository, each of these partners accepts certain responsibilities that ensure establishment of this valuable resource for use by the international earthquake engineering community.
The overall purpose of this document is to set forth policies that encourage, ensure and facilitate full and open access to high quality data archived in the NEES Data Repository.
