The 4C database is intended for sharing and sharing is a requirement of the database. Authors can utilize the 4C database to share the wisdom gained from case studies that are both in progress and complete. This type of sharing can be likened to the sharing of research in progress that commonly occurs at conferences or other forms of academic communication (if so desired, authors can state "work in progress" in the title of their cases). Contributors to the 4C database are solely responsible for following ethical procedures regarding their research. Readers of the cases in the archive are responsible to seek the permission of authors to copy, cite, and reproduce unpublished case studies.
4C is currently housed on the Site5 Server.The servers are located in Vancouver, Canada.
