PhysioNetWorks workspaces are available to members of the PhysioNet community for works in progress that will be made publicly available via PhysioNet when complete. Unlike other areas of PhysioNet, these workspaces are password-protected.
Any PhysioNet visitor can become a PhysioNetWorks member in a few minutes by creating a personal account.
PhysioNetWorks members can view titles and abstracts of active PhysioNetWorks projects (workspaces that include secure archival storage for data or software that will eventually be contributed to PhysioNet).
Each project has a single owner, who determines its access policy. A project's owner can share it with any or all PhysioNetWorks members, giving each project member read/write access (“collaborator” status) or read-only access (“reviewer” status). A project owner can also transfer owner status to another member of the project with that member's consent. (Learn more about projects here.)
Each member has a personal (non-sharable) workspace, and can upload up to 100 megabytes of files into it. Any type of research data may be stored, including data in spreadsheets, relational databases, or flat binary or text files.
A personal workspace can be used to prototype new projects. When ready, its owner may request activation of a private project. All requests are reviewed, and activated projects are moved into dedicated sharable workspaces of up to 100 gigabytes (10 GB by default; larger amounts are available on request).
PhysioNet provides daily incremental and monthly full backup of PhysioNetWorks. Data deleted before the most recent full backup are not recoverable. All disks used for storage (on-line or backup) are encrypted and kept in physically secure locations.

If you are ready to begin, or if you just want to see how PhysioNetWorks can work for you, you can get started immediately:
- If you have not already done so, become a member of PhysioNetWorks first. Using the Create account button near the top of this page, make a personal PhysioNetWorks account for yourself. Each of your collaborators should also create a personal PhysioNetWorks account. This process takes only a minute or two; once you have finished, you will be directed to your newly-created PhysioNetWorks home page.
- Explore the existing PhysioNetWorks projects. Each project has a home page with a brief description written by its owner. Many projects welcome new members; you will find information about joining projects on their home pages.
- On your home page, click the Create a new project button on your PhysioNetWorks home page, and follow the instructions that will be shown to create a private project within your personal workspace. (It is not visible to anyone else at this time.)
- Your new project appears near the bottom of your home page, with associated Review, Upload, and Manage buttons. These buttons link to pages that provide the functions available to reviewers, collaborators, and project owners respectively (except that the Manage page does not include functions for managing project membership, since private projects cannot be shared). Set up your project as you prefer using its Manage page, and experiment with uploading files to it. You can delete it and start over if you wish.
- When you're ready, go to your project's Manage page and mark it as Ready to activate. Your project will then be reviewed by PhysioNet (usually within a day or two). If your project requires additional work before it can be activated, you will receive an email describing what is needed.
- Once your project is activated, it will have its own (larger) workspace, and you can begin sharing it with your colleagues (or any other PhysioNetWorks members) using the project membership controls on its Manage page. You can grant read-only access to some members (reviewers), and read-and-upload access to others (collaborators) if you wish. Although collaborators can upload files to your project archive, they cannot alter existing files; only you (the owner) have that privilege.
- After your project is complete (perhaps after your major results have been published), return to its Manage page and mark it as Ready to publish. Your project will be reviewed again by PhysioNet, and if approved, will be transferred to a publicly accessible area on PhysioNet.
