FAQ Answer

Why are some data restricted from open access?

Data from PASSCAL (and some other temporary deployments) are subject to a two-year moratorium, allowing the principal investigators (PIs) who carried out the scientific study the opportunity to report and publish results with exclusive access to their data.  As a result, access is allowed only to designated investigators, where the experiment PIs have sole authority to grant such access.  At the end of the moratorium, barring extenuating circumstances, the data are released to open public access.
