CRITIAS:DB – Open Access Data Repository

  1. ÉTS, by means of its NSERC-EERS Industrial Research Chair in In-Ear Technologies (CRITIAS), owns a database of research data pertaining to in-ear technology (including, but not limited to, speech recording, noise sound level, dimensions, 3D models) (the “CRITIAS Database”), led by the Professor Jérémie Voix (the “Lead Researcher”).
  2. Because Professor Voix believes in Open Science, and since the 2010 release of Access to Research Results: Guiding Principles by the three federal granting agencies–the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC)–included a commitment to developing 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 some dataset from CRITIAS Database available in open-access through its “CRITIAS:DB Open Access Data Repository“.
  3. The access to certain dataset within the CRITIAS:DB Open Access Repository, solely for the purposes of its research project, is ruled by a Data Access Agreement and can be requested using the following form: CRITIAS:DB – Google Form
  4. After the request has been submitted to the Database Management Committee (as defined in Section 1.1 below) as well as to the ÉTS Research Ethics Committee for approval, and, after review, the Access Recipient will be granted a limited access right to the Dataset, the whole subject to the terms and conditions indicated in the Data Access Agreement.

Here is the list of available datasets:

  1. iBad: In-Ear Biosignals Audio Database
  2. SpEAR: An in-ear speech recorded database in varying conditions of the audio-phonation loop
  3. AD2011: Earcanal Dynamic Geometry
  4. VN2017: Field DPOAE Monitoring
  5. FB2017: In-Ear Field Dosimetry
  6. JBG2018: Evaluation of the energetic potential related to daily temporomandibular activity
