How do I access ICES data for research purposes?
Research conducted using ICES data must have scientific integrity, meet privacy and security standards, use ICES resources appropriately, follow ICES policies and procedures, and fit within the ICES mandate.
There are several ways researchers/scientists can access ICES data. These include:
1. Becoming an ICES scientist
2. Collaborating with an ICES scientist
Grants or subcontracts submitted to an external agency and research projects that use ICES data require that either the principal investigator or co-principal investigator is an ICES core or adjunct scientist. Grants and projects from investigators external to ICES require an ICES co-investigator. This person will participate fully in the research project and is the responsible party within ICES. The ICES investigator is expected to attend all project meetings, co-direct the analysis, and ensure that all ICES policies and procedures are followed.
