  2. I will not further disclose these data beyond the uses outlined in this agreement and my data use application.

If I publish abstracts using data from HCP, I agree to the following:
  1. I will cite HCP as the source of data and the HCP funding sources in the abstract as space allows in the acknowledgements.
  2. Group authorship of HCP will not be cited in the authorship line of the abstract.
If I publish manuscripts using data from HCP, I agree to the following:
  1. I will acknowledge the HCP project as a source of data and include language similar to the following:

    * Data collection and sharing for this project was provided by the Human Connectome Project (HCP; Principal Investigators: Bruce Rosen, M.D., Ph.D., Arthur W. Toga, Ph.D., Van J. Weeden, MD). HCP funding was provided by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). HCP data are disseminated by the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of Southern California.

  2. I will include language similar to the following in the methods section of my manuscripts in order to accurately acknowledge data gathering by the HCP investigators. Depending upon the length and focus of the article, it may be appropriate to include more or less than the example below, however, inclusion of some variation of the language shown below is mandatory.

    "Data used in the preparation of this work were obtained from the Human Connectome Project (HCP) database (https://ida.loni.usc.edu/login.jsp). The HCP project (Principal Investigators : Bruce Rosen, M.D., Ph.D., Martinos Center at Massachusetts General Hospital; Arthur W. Toga, Ph.D., University of Southern California, Van J. Weeden, MD, Martinos Center at Massachusetts General Hospital) is supported by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). HCP is the result of efforts of co-investigators from the University of Southern California, Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Washington University, and the University of Minnesota."

I understand that failure to abide by these guidelines will result in termination of my privileges to access HCP data.
