Dear BioPortal Team,

I’m contacting you on behalf of BioSharing[1], the online registry of 
life science data standards, databases and policies. Our aim is to make 
your resources as visible as possible to the maximum number of potential 

As well as making use of your widgets and linking out to BioPortal in 
our ontology records, we have BioSharing records for two of your 
resources: the metadata ontology and the registry itself[2]. To ensure 
our information for your resources are as correct and up to date as 
possible, would you or someone from your team quickly scan the 
records[2] and ‘claim’ them? (To claim, see link [3] below.)

Claiming a record as either a group or an individual also gives you the 
opportunity to make changes to the record yourself, allowing you 
complete control over how your resources are displayed in BioSharing. In 
addition, if you claim a record(s) as an individual, you can link the 
record to your ORCID.

BioSharing is about making your resource discoverable and our users, 
such as Nature Publishing Group[4], the US NIH Big Data to Knowledge 
(BD2K) Initiative[5]’s centers and the EU ELIXIR[6] network use 
BioSharing to inform decisions on their data and infrastructure 
policies. A contact is essential should they have any questions about 
your resource. Data from BioSharing also feeds into resources such as 
DataCite[7], Dryad[8] and re3data[9], to provide a complete view of life 
science standards, policies and databases for researchers, funders and 
publishers. Just click to claim, and we'll do the rest!
