Synapse has several useful tools to cite data so you can properly attribute your work. Mint a digital object identifier (DOI) to fully integrate publications and relevant evidence into your Synapse project, or set provenance to explicitly link GitHub code and other resources to data files. Tracking these steps directly in Synapse increases trust in the reliability of your data and analyses.


The Synapse provenance system is one of many solutions you can use to make your work reproducible by you and others.
