Welcome to the NET+ LabArchives Program!

The Internet2 NET+ LabArchives Program is open to all Internet2 members and entities mutually agreed to by Internet2 and LabArchives. LabArchives is a suite of SaaS applications that help scientists manage and document their research data, prove & protect discovery, collaborate securely, and manage inventory, samples, and lab resources. LabArchives is used in research labs and higher education courses across the globe, and Enterprise Licenses are designed for large groups, departments and enterprises and empower end-users and administrators with powerful, yet easy-to-use scientific workflow applications.

Features like organization-wide permissions and controls, access to LabArchives API for custom builds and unlimited data storage ensure LabArchives tools can be customized to meet each enterprise’s specific needs. LabArchives Enterprise Success Team onboards users and works with administrators and systems managers to support users at every organizational level.

Data Management and Sharing Policy

LabArchives supports the key aspects of the NIH 2023 Data Management and Sharing (DMS) policy which is now in effect. This policy has three high-level components:

  1. Planning and budgeting for data management and sharing

  2. Creation of a Data Management & Sharing (DMS) plan 

  3. Implementation of the DMS plan
