CRITIAS:DB Dataverse – Open access database

CRITIAS:DB Dataverse – Open access database

ÉTS, through its ÉTS-EERS Industrial Research Chair in In-Ear Technologies (CRITIAS) led by Professor Jérémie Voix (Lead Researcher), owns a database of research data pertaining to in-ear technology, including but not limited to speech recording, noise sound levels, dimensions and 3D models (the CRITIAS Database).

Professor Voix believes in Open Science, and therefore, since the 2010 release of Access to Research Results: Guiding Principles by the three federal granting agencies – the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) – included a commitment to develop a shared approach for improving access to publicly funded research in keeping with internationally recognized best practices, standards and policies for funding and conducting research, a formal request was made to ÉTS to make some datasets from the CRITIAS Database available in open access through its CRITIAS:DB Open Access Data Repository from Borealis Dataverse repository.

The access to certain datasets within the CRITIAS:DB Open Access Repository, solely for the purposes of its research project, is governed by a Data Access Agreement, and can be requested through the Borealis Dataverse repository.

After a request has been submitted to the Database Management Committee and the ÉTS Research Ethics Committee for approval, and after a review, the Access Recipient will be granted a limited access right to the Dataset, subject to the terms and conditions indicated in the Data Access Agreement.
