A Crowdsourcing Data Platform
Delve is built as a crowdsourcing data and information platform. The value of the platform is dependent on organizations and individuals within the ASM sector to contribute their data and resources to the benefit of the entire Delve user community and beyond. By making complete, accurate and reliable data available to all users, we advance the common good of formalizing the ASM sector globally. Improved data informs policy making, guides design of interventions, provides accurate information to the media and shines a light on the scale and importance of the ASM sector. It also highlights the incredible work of organization and individuals operating within the sector and recognizes learning and achievement. Thank you for your contribution to the global ASM community!
Contribution Functionality Coming Soon
With the official launch of Version 1.0 of the Delve platform in the summer of 2019, individuals will have the ability to create a user accounts within the Delve platform that will allow them to contribute data and resources to Delve. The mechanics of contributing data and resources are being developed and tested during the beta version of the site.

Open Data Principle
All data on the Delve platform that is shared by contributors or has been publicly catalogued is open to public access for free. Delve follows standard “open data” principles as defined by the Open Definition:
Open data is data that can be freely used, re-used and redistributed by anyone - subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and share alike.
Access to certain data sources in which data is cited from are protected by the respective publisher’s access rights (e.g. an academic journal article).
Data and resource contributors retain ownership of their contribution but consent to it being used as part of an open data initiative. The data contributed to the database is fully attributed to the data source entity. Ownership rights to the data set are also retained by the data source entity. The aggregate data generated by the database will be considered open and non-proprietary for public use and re-distribution.
