Collection - General Tab

Fields available for edit on the top portion of the page include:

  • Collection Title
  • Investigators
  • Collection Description
  • Collection Phase
  • Funding Source
  • Clinical Trials

Collection Status: The visibility status of an NDA Collection.  Collection Status can be Shared or Private.  Collections in Shared status are visible to all users and can be searched in the NDA Query Tool. Private Collections are not visible to NDA users.  The Status of an NDA Collection only affects the visibility of information about the Collection (metadata) and does not relate to the status of the record-level research data in the NDA Collection.

Collection Phase: The current status of a research project submitting data to an NDA Collection, based on the timing of the award and/or the data that have been submitted.
 

  • Pre-Enrollment: The default entry made when the NDA Collection is created.
     
  • Enrolling: Data have been submitted to the NDA Collection or the NDA Data Expected initial submission date has been reached for at least one data structure category in the NDA Collection.
     
  • Data Analysis: Subject level data collection for the research project is completed and has been submitted to the NDA Collection.  The NDA Collection owner or the NDA Help Desk may set this phase when they’ve confirmed data submission is complete and submitted subject counts match at least 90% of the target enrollment numbers in the NDA Data Expected. Data submission reminders will be turned off for the NDA Collection.
     
  • Funding Completed: The NIH grant award (or awards) associated with the NDA Collection has reached its end date. NDA Collections in Funding Completed phase are assigned a subphase to indicate the status of data submission.
     
    • The Data Expected Subphase indicates that NDA expects more data will be submitted
    • The Closeout Subphase indicates the data submission is complete.
    • The Sharing Not Met Subphase indicates that data submission was not completed as expected. 

Blinded Clinical Trial Status:

  • This status is set by a Collection Owner and indicates the research project is a double blinded clinical trial.  When selected, the public view of Data Expected will show the Data Expected items and the Submission Dates, but the targeted enrollment and subjects submitted counts will not be displayed.
     
  • Targeted enrollment and subjects submitted counts are visible only to NDA Administrators and to the NDA Collection or as the NDA Collection Owner.
     
  • When an NDA Collection that is flagged Blinded Clinical Trial reaches the maximum data sharing date for that Data Repository (see https://nda.nih.gov/about/sharing-regimen.html), the embargo on Data Expected information is released.
     

Funding Source

The organization(s) responsible for providing the funding is listed here. 

Supporting Documentation

Users with Submission privileges, as well as Collection Owners, Program  Officers, and those with Administrator privileges, may upload and attach supporting documentation. By default, supporting documentation is shared to the general public, however, the option is also available to limit this information to qualified researchers only. 

Grant Information 

Identifiable details are displayed about the Project of which the Collection was derived from. You may click in the Project Number to view a full report of the Project captured by the NIH. 

Clinical Trials

Any data that is collected to support or further the research of clinical studies will be available here. Collection Owners and those with Administrator privileges may add new clinical trials. 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When a Collection is created by NDA staff and marked as Shared, an email notification will automatically be sent to the PI(s) of the grant(s) associated with the Collection to notify them.

  • During Collection creation, NDA staff determine the appropriate Permission Group based on the type of data to be submitted, the type of access that will be available to data access users, and the information provided by the Program Officer during grant award.

  • The NDA system does not allow for a single grant to be associated with more than one Collection; therefore, a single grant will not be listed in the Grant Information section of a Collection for more than one Collection.

  • In general, each Collection is associated with only one grant; however, multiple grants may be associated if the grant has multiple competing segments for the same grant number or if multiple different grants are all working on the same project and it makes sense to hold the data in one Collection (e.g., Cooperative Agreements).

Glossary

  • Number of human subjects enrolled in an NIH-funded clinical research study. The data is provided in annual progress reports.

  • A privilege provided to a user associated with an NDA Collection or NDA Study whereby that user can perform a full range of actions including providing privileges to other users. 

  • Generally, the Collection Owner is the contact PI listed on a grant. Only one NDA user is listed as the Collection owner. Most automated emails are primarily sent to the Collection Owner.

  • The Collection Phase provides information on data submission as opposed to grant/project completion so while the Collection phase and grant/project phase may be closely related they are often different.  Collection users with Administrative Privileges are encouraged to edit the Collection Phase.  The Program Officer as listed in eRA (for NIH funded grants) may also edit this field. Changes must be saved by clicking the Save button at the bottom of the page.  This field is sortable alphabetically in ascending or descending order. Collection Phase options include: 

    • Pre-Enrollment:  A grant/project has started, but has not yet enrolled subjects.
    • Enrolling:  A grant/project has begun enrolling subjects.  Data submission is likely ongoing at this point.
    • Data Analysis:  A grant/project has completed enrolling subjects and has completed all data submissions.
    • Funding Completed:  A grant/project has reached the project end date.
  • The Collection State indicates whether the Collection is viewable and searchable.  Collections can be either Private, Shared, or an Ongoing Study.  A Collection that is shared does not necessarily have shared data as the Collection State and state of data are independent of each other.  This field can be edited by Collection users with Administrative Privileges and the Program Officer as listed in eRA (for NIH funded grants). Changes must be saved by clicking the Save button at the bottom of the page.

  • An editable field with the title of the Collection, which is often the title of the grant associated with the Collection.

  • Data Use Limitations (DULs) describe the appropriate secondary use of a dataset and are based on the original informed consent of a research participant. NDA only accepts consent-based data use limitations defined by the NIH Office of Science Policy.

  • Provides the grant number(s) for the grant(s) associated with the Collection.  The field is a hyperlink so clicking on the Grant number will direct the user to the grant information in the NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools (RePORT) page.

  • A virtual container and organization structure for data and associated documentation from one grant or one large project/consortium. It contains tools for tracking data submission and allows investigators to define a wide array of other elements that provide context for the data, including all general information regarding the data and source project, experimental parameters used to collect any event-based data contained in the Collection, methods, and other supporting documentation. They also allow investigators to link underlying data to an NDA Study, defining populations and subpopulations specific to research aims. 

  • NDA Collections may be organized by scientific similarity into NIH Research Initiatives, to facilitate query tool user experience. NIH Research Initiatives map to one or multiple Funding Opportunity Announcements. 

  • Access to shared record-level data in NDA is provisioned at the level of a Permission Group. NDA Permission Groups consist of one or multiple NDA Collections that contain data with the same subject consents.

  • Number of human subject participants to be enrolled in an NIH-funded clinical research study. The data is provided in competing applications and annual progress reports.

  • Various documents and materials to enable efficient use of the data by investigators unfamiliar with the project and may include the research protocol, questionnaires, and study manuals.  

  • The total number of unique subjects for whom data have been shared and are available for users with permission to access data.

NDA Help Center

Collection - Shared Data Tab

This tab provides a quick overview of the Data Structure title, Data Type, and Number of Subjects that are currently Shared for the Collection. The information presented in this tab is automatically generated by NDA and cannot be edited. If no information is visible on this tab, this would indicate the Collection does not have shared data or the data is private.

The shared data is available to other researchers who have permission to access data in the Collection's designated Permission Group(s). Use the Download button to get all shared data from the Collection to the Filter Cart.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • To see what data your project have submitted are being used by a study, simply go the Associated Studies tab of your collection.  Alternatively, you may review an NDA Study Attribution Report available on the General tab.  

  • Often it becomes more difficult to organize and format data electronically after the project has been completed and the information needed to create a GUID may not be available; however, you may still contact a program staff member at the appropriate funding institution for more information.

  • Unlike completed projects where researchers may not have the information needed to create a GUID and/or where the effort needed to organize and format data becomes prohibitive, ongoing projects have more of an opportunity to overcome these challenges.  Please contact a program staff member at the appropriate funding institution for more information.

Glossary

  • A defined organization and group of Data Elements to represent an electronic definition of a measure, assessment, questionnaire, or collection of data points. Data structures that have been defined in the NDA Data Dictionary are available at https://nda.nih.gov/general-query.html?q=query=data-structure

  • A grouping of data by similar characteristics such as Clinical Assessments, Omics, or Neurosignal data.

  • The term 'Shared' generally means available to others; however, there are some slightly different meanings based on what is Shared.  A Shared NDA Collection or NDA Study is viewable and searchable publicly regardless of the user's role or whether the user has an NDA account.  A Shared Collection or NDA Study does not necessarily mean that data submitted to the Collection or used in the NDA Study have been shared as this is independently determined.  Data are shared according the schedule defined in a Collection's Data Expected Tab and/or in accordance with data sharing expectations in the NDA Data Sharing Terms and Conditions.  Additionally, Supporting Documentation uploaded to a Collection may be shared independent of whether data are shared, but will only be viewable and accessible if the Collection is Shared.

Collection - Data Expected

The Data Expected tab displays the list of all data that NDA expects to receive in association with the Collection as defined by the contributing researcher, as well as the dates for the expected initial upload of the data, and when it is first expected to be shared, or with the research community. Above the primary table of Data Expected, any publications determined to be relevant to the data within the Collection are also displayed - members of the contributing research group can use these to define NDA Studies, connecting those papers to underlying data in NDA.

The tab is used both as a reference for those accessing shared data, providing information on what is expected and when it will be shared, and as the primary tracking mechanism for contributing projects. It is used by both contributing primary researchers, secondary researchers, and NIH Program and Grants Management staff.

Contributing researchers just getting started on their project will need to define this list by adding all of the items they are collecting under their grant and setting their schedule according to the NDA Data Sharing Regimen. If you fall into this category, you can begin by clicking "add new Data Expected" and selecting which data structures you will be using, saving the page after each change, or requesting new structures by adding and naming a new item, providing any materials NDA Data Dictionary Curators can use to help define your structure. For more information see the tutorial on creating Data Expected.

If you are a contributing researcher creating this list for the first time, or making changes to the list as your project progress, please note the following:

  • Although items you add to the list and changes you make are displayed, they are not committed to the system until you Save the entire page using the "Save" button at the bottom of your screen. Please Save after every change to ensure none of your work is lost.
  • If you attempt to add a new structure, the title you provide must be unique - if another structure exists with the same name your change will fail.
  • Adding a new structure to this list is the only way to request the creation of a new Data Dictionary definition.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • An NDA Data Structure is comprised of multiple Data Elements to make up an electronic definition of an assessment, measure, questionnaire, etc will have a corresponding Data Structure.

  • The NDA Data Dictionary is comprised of electronic definitions known as Data Structures.

Glossary

  • Items listed on the Data Expected list in the Collection which may be an individual and discrete Data Structure, Data Structure Category, or Data Structure Group.

  • A defined organization and group of Data Elements to represent an electronic definition of a measure, assessment, questionnaire, or collection of data points. Data structures that have been defined in the NDA Data Dictionary are available at https://nda.nih.gov/general-query.html?q=query=data-structure

  • An NDA term describing the affiliation of a Data Structure to a Category, which may be disease/disorder or diagnosis related (Depression, ADHD, Psychosis), specific to data type (MRI, eye tracking, omics), or type of data (physical exam, IQ).

  • A Data Item listed on the Data Expected tab of a Collection that indicates a group of Data Structures (e.g., ADOS or SCID) for which data may be submitted instead of a specific Data Structure identified by version, module, edition, etc. For example, the ADOS Data Structure Category includes every ADOS Data Structure such as ADOS Module 1, ADOS Module 2, ADOS Module 1 - 2nd Edition, etc. The SCID Data Structure Group includes every SCID Data Structure such as SCID Mania, SCID V Mania, SCID PTSD, SCID-V Diagnosis, and more. 

  • A new Data Structure category, Evaluated Data is analyzed data resulting from the use of computational pipelines in the Cloud and can be uploaded directly back to a miNDAR database.  Evaluated Data is expected to be listed as a Data Item in the Collection's Data Expected Tab.

  • Imaging+ is an NDA term which encompasses all imaging related data including, but not limited to, images (DTI, MRI, PET, Structural, Spectroscopy, etc.) as well as neurosignal data (EEG, fMRI, MEG, EGG, eye tracking, etc.) and Evaluated Data.

  • Initial Submission and Initial Share dates should be populated according to the NDA Data Sharing Terms and Conditions. Any modifications to these will go through the approval processes outlined above. Data will be shared with authorized users upon publication (via an NDA Study) or 1-2 years after the grant end date specified on the first Notice of Award, as defined in the applicable Data Sharing Terms and Conditions.

  • Initial Submission and Initial Share dates should be populated according to these NDA Data Sharing Terms and Conditions. Any modifications to these will go through the approval processes outlined above. Data for all subjects is not expected on the Initial Submission Date and modifications may be made as necessary based on the project's conduct.

  • An NDA created Data Structure used to convey basic information about the subject such as demographics, pedigree (links family GUIDs), diagnosis/phenotype, and sample location that are critical to allow for easier querying of shared data.

  • The NDA has two Submission Cycles per year - January 15 and July 15.

  • An interface to notify NDA that data may not be submitted during the upcoming/current submission cycle.

Collection - Permissions Tab

Collection Owners, Program Officers, and users with Administrator privileges may view this tab.

The available permission groups include:

  • Query: This read-only access is generally for NIH Program Officers
  • Submission: This will grant read access and allow the user to upload data and create experiment definitions. This is for the typical contributing personnel member.
  • Administrator: In addition to the access provided to Query and Submission users, Admins can also edit the Collection itself, create or edit the Data Expected list, and edit user permissions. This access is for the PI, data managers, and anyone they wish to delegate this to.

The PI has a special designation as the Collection Owner in addition to administrator access.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Collection Owners and Admins may assign Collection Privileges to anyone.

  • Yes, you can assign various Privileges to other users with an NDA account.

  • If you are the Collection Owner or have Admin privileges, you can view and make changes to the list of individuals who have access to the Collection on the Collection's Permissions tab.  Information on users who have access to data Shared in your Collection because they were granted access to a Permission Group is not available.

  • Staff/collaborators who are working submitting data to the Collection, checking the quality of the data, and/or analyzing data should have access for the duration of the project until all data have been submitted, NDA Studies have been created for data used in publications, and/or a collaborative relationship with the user exists.  

  • The individual listed as an Investigator on the General tab of the NDA Collection will generally be able to provide a user access to the NDA Collection.  Additional users may also have this ability if granted Administrator access to an NDA Collection; however, these users are not viewable unless your account has access to the NDA Collection.  Given this, it is best to contact the Investigator to request access to the Collection.

  • Privileges that can be assigned to a user include:
    Submission allows a user to submit data to Collection
    Query allows the user to download data from Collection even when in a Private state
    Admin is both the Submission and Query Privilege + the ability to give privileges to other users.

  • You may have staff who are working on the submission of data or other activities associated with data sharing such as the definition of the Data Expected list or NDA Experiment creation.  Also, many projects have multiple performance sites and wish to share data among the site PIs.  Submitting to the NDA facilitates access by all investigators working on a project even before data have been shared with other users.  You can control who gets access to data while in a Private state.

Glossary

  • A privilege provided to a user associated with an NDA Collection or NDA Study whereby that user can perform a full range of actions including providing privileges to other users.

Silvio O. Conte Center for Oxytocin and Social Cognition
Larry Young 
The oxytocin (OT) system is arguably the most viable target for pharmacologically enhancing social cognition in psychiatric disorders with compromised social cognition, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Central OT enhances key aspects of social behavior in animals, and intranasal (IN) OT modulates social cognition in humans. The mechanisms by which OT affects social cognition are not understood. We will launch a coordinated, interdisciplinary research program involving an outstanding team of investigators to test the hypothesis that OT enhances social cognition by increasing the salience and reinforcing value of social stimuli by modulating activity and functional connectivity of the amygdala and brain regions involved in reward. Project scientists will use cutting edge techniques to assess functional connectivity between brain regions during social interactions, responses of individual neurons in the amygdala to social stimuli, or social cognition in animals and humans. Projects 1 and 2 will use in vivo electrophysiology to examine the impact of OT on the neural representation of social stimuli in rodents and rhesus macaques. Project 3 will use cognitive tests to examine the impact of OT on social perception and social attunement in the primate.Project 4 will use cognitive testing and fMRI to examine the impact of OT on social cognition and neuralactivity in healthy and autistic humans. A Neurochemistry Core will provide vital services for the research projects and develop new tools for characterizing OT receptor expression in the brain. An Administrative Core will coordinate all Center related activities (seminar series, organizing meetings), will provide statistical consultation and coordinate outreach and training activities of Center personnel by strengthening existing relationships and forging new relationships with numerous organizations in the Atlanta area. As a result, the Center will create vibrant collaborative research, training and outreach environment that will have a national impact on mental health research. The data collected by Center faculty will have important transiationaimplications that will directly impact novel strategies for pharmacologically treating social deficits in psychiatric disorders.

  • Collection Phase
  • Funding Source
  • Clinical Trials

Collection Status: The visibility status of an NDA Collection. Collection Status can be Shared or Private. Collections in Shared status are visible to all users and can be searched in the NDA Query Tool. Private Collections are not visible to NDA users. The Status of an NDA Collection only affects the visibility of information about the Collection (metadata) and does not relate to the status of the record-level research data in the NDA Collection.

Collection Phase: The current status of a research project submitting data to an NDA Collection, based on the timing of the award and/or the data that have been submitted.

  • Pre-Enrollment: The default entry made when the NDA Collection is created.
  • Enrolling: Data have been submitted to the NDA Collection or the NDA Data Expected initial submission date has been reached for at least one data structure category in the NDA Collection.
  • Data Analysis: Subject level data collection for the research project is completed and has been submitted to the NDA Collection. The NDA Collection owner or the NDA Help Desk may set this phase when they’ve confirmed data submission is complete and submitted subject counts match at least 90% of the target enrollment numbers in the NDA Data Expected. Data submission reminders will be turned off for the NDA Collection.
  • Funding Completed: The NIH grant award (or awards) associated with the NDA Collection has reached its end date. NDA Collections in Funding Completed phase are assigned a subphase to indicate the status of data submission.
    • The Data Expected Subphase indicates that NDA expects more data will be submitted
    • The Closeout Subphase indicates the data submission is complete.
    • The Sharing Not Met Subphase indicates that data submission was not completed as expected.

Blinded Clinical Trial Status:

  • This status is set by a Collection Owner and indicates the research project is a double blinded clinical trial. When selected, the public view of Data Expected will show the Data Expected items and the Submission Dates, but the targeted enrollment and subjects submitted counts will not be displayed.
  • Targeted enrollment and subjects submitted counts are visible only to NDA Administrators and to the NDA Collection or as the NDA Collection Owner.
  • When an NDA Collection that is flagged Blinded Clinical Trial reaches the maximum data sharing date for that Data Repository (see https://nda.nih.gov/about/sharing-regimen.html), the embargo on Data Expected information is released.

Funding Source

The organization(s) responsible for providing the funding is listed here.

Supporting Documentation

Users with Submission privileges, as well as Collection Owners, Program Officers, and those withAdministrator privileges, may upload and attach supporting documentation. By default, supporting documentation is shared to the general public, however, the optionis also available tolimit this information to qualified researchers only.

Grant Information

Identifiable details are displayed about the Project of which the Collection was derived from. You may click in the Project Number to view a full report of the Project capturedby the NIH.

Clinical Trials

Any data that is collected to support or further the research of clinical studies will be available here. Collection Owners and those with Administrator privileges may add new clinical trials.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I know when a NDA Collection has been created???
    When a Collection is created by NDA staff and marked as Shared, an email notification will automatically be sent to the PI(s) of the grant(s) associated with the Collection to notify them.
  • How does the NIMH Data Archive (NDA) determine which Permission Group data are submitted into?
    During Collection creation, NDA staff determine the appropriate Permission Group based on the type of data to be submitted, the type of access that will be available to data access users, and the information provided by the Program Officer during grant award.
  • Is a single grant number ever associated with more than one Collection?
    The NDA system does not allow for a single grant to be associated with more than one Collection; therefore, a single grant will not be listed in the Grant Information section of a Collection for more than one Collection.

Associated Studies

Studies that have been defined using data from a Collection are important criteria to determine the value of data shared. The number of subjects column displays the counts from this Collection that are included in a Study, out of the total number of subjects in that study. The Data Use column represents whether or not the study is a primary analysis of the data or a secondary analysis. State indicates whether the study is private or shared with the research community.

Study NameAbstractCollection/Study SubjectsData UsageState
Characterizing Auditory Hyperreactivity in AutismObjective: To answer the following research questions: 1) What is the prevalence of auditory hyper-reactivity in ASD? 2) Does auditory hyper-reactivity severity change with age? and 3) What are the most common auditory stimuli reported to be bothersome? Research Design: Primarily descriptive secondary data analysis. Methods: Type of data: Questionnaire items regarding auditory hyper-reactivity will be filtered from: Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised, Sensory Profile (all forms), Sensory Over-Responsivity Scale, and Sensory Experiences Questionnaire in addition to demographics (i.e., age, race, ethnicity, diagnoses). Analysis Plan: Descriptive statistics, tables and figures will be used to summarize the prevalence and severity of auditory hyper-reactivity by age. Linear regression modeling will be used to evaluate changes in auditory hyper-reactivity by age. If data is available for control subjects, statistical analyses will be conducted for means comparison (ASD vs. non-ASD). 20/7001Secondary AnalysisPrivate
Investigating autism etiology and heterogeneity by decision tree algorithmAutism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that causes deficits in cognition, communication and social skills. ASD, however, is a highly heterogeneous disorder. This heterogeneity has made identifying the etiology of ASD a particularly difficult challenge, as patients exhibit a wide spectrum of symptoms without any unifying genetic or environmental factors to account for the disorder. For better understanding of ASD, it is paramount to identify potential genetic and environmental risk factors that are comorbid with it. Identifying such factors is of great importance to determine potential causes for the disorder, and understand its heterogeneity. Existing large-scale datasets offer an opportunity for computer scientists to undertake this task by utilizing machine learning to reliably and efficiently obtain insight about potential ASD risk factors, which would in turn assist in guiding research in the field. In this study, decision tree algorithms were utilized to analyze related factors in datasets obtained from the National Database for Autism Research (NDAR) consisting of nearly 3000 individuals. We were able to identify 15 medical conditions that were highly associated with ASD diagnoses in patients; furthermore, we extended our analysis to the family medical history of patients and we report six potentially hereditary medical conditions associated with ASD. Associations reported had a 90% accuracy. Meanwhile, gender comparisons highlighted conditions that were unique to each gender and others that overlapped. Those findings were validated by the academic literature, thus opening the way for new directions for the use of decision tree algorithms to further understand the etiology of autism. 12/3382Secondary AnalysisShared
