HCMI Publication Guidelines
The Human Cancer Model Initiative (HCMI) is a "community resource" and releases models and case-associated clinical, biospecimen, and molecular characterization data to the broader research community.
The initiative members plan to publish a joint comprehensive manuscript when the number of models released reaches a critical number. We, therefore, request that investigators do not publish a manuscript using a large cohort of HCMI models and data before the paper is published. Use and publication of up to five models is acceptable and we suggest acknowledging HCMI as follows:
"The models and the data are from the Human Cancer Models Initiative (HCMI) www.cancer.gov/ccg/research/functional-genomics/hcmi; dbGaP accession number phs001486."
