Mission and Principles:

 

Killi-Data aims to present all available information on Killies or oviparous Cyprinodontiformes fishes.
Killi-Data compiles state of the art knowledge, wherever it sources from, scientist or aquarist
Killi-Data is evidence based, not opinion based. If conflicting results arise from distinct phylogenetic methods, then a compromise is selected that purports the maximum of results, ending up in a splitting way as most taxonomic works, today.
Killi-Data is a non-profit venture that redistributes all financial benefits, the major part being attributed to young scientists or collectors to support research on oviparous Cyprinodontiformes fishes or Killies.
Killi-Data aims to spread knowledge on oviparous Cyprinodontiformes fishes or Killifishes and to stimulate research by donations to scientific INSTITUTIONS
Killi-Data strongly encourages cooperation between ichthyologists, either professional or amateur, and aquarists, and collectors to build a cooperative community of interest and knowledge.

Killi-Data is a cooperative platform 
Cooperation is a necessity. The scope of Killi-Data is too big for the initail author, alone or the present editor team.
Types of contribution for members are detailed in the Website.

All fees, donations are redistributed to young researchers and to aquarists for their first collecting trip. (March 2009 : 3100 Euros -about 4000 US Dollars, have been distributed in 8 grants).

 

Ethics:

 

Killi-Data online respects the privacy of its members: no personal information will be transferred to any third party, for whatsoever reason. 
Information on membership are secured in a separate external disk and no cookies have been incorporated in the web pages (except on Google Ads, by Google)
However, knowing Internet pitfalls, no guarantee can be given that data will not be stolen for commercial purposes, at any point in time.
If sponsors eventually want to support the website by advertising on the basis of its visits, data on visitors will be limited to anonymous statistics.

This website has not been designed to be visually attractive, only: scientific contents have received full priority.
Full time is given to the updating and to the quality of the data, not on audio or video smart effects.

Killi-Data online aims to gather the most detailed and first class data on oviparous Cyprinodontiformes.
This may only be achieved by a cooperative attitude of all its members/visitors, whenever they are amateurs or professionals, aquarists or scientists.
A reason why contributions are highly valued and why they are publicized (see MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS

Similarly, its financial part has not only been built for fund raising issues to young researchers in Institutions and to young aquarists for their first Killi-collecting trip, but also as an incentive to develop cooperative strategies and reciprocal interests by new young researchers and new young collector aquarists.
