As many of you know, we have been working on the development of an accessible database focused on data from trace element partitioning experiments (traceDs). This message is to inform the community that we are making changes in how and where you may upload your data. These changes involve the EarthChem community effort and may be accessed through the site below.
This repository will enable you to get a doi for your data and facilitate the dissemination of your results. In addition, for most of you, EarthChem represents an "official" repository that satisfies funding agency requirements.
The process for submission is provided in the link above. It provides access to information on what is required for inclusion, a data template, and a pathway for upload.
In the interest of providing the community with more substantial assistance in getting your data included, we will be holding a workshop (by zoom) to go over the individual steps for upload.
The workshop will take place on April 30 at 1 PM (MDT) ( 7PM GMT). Our focus will be on helping those who produced the data (e.g., graduate students and post-doctoral fellows) get through the process of data upload. Towards that end, please forward this message to anyone you know who is currently producing experimental data or in the process of publishing their data.
To attend the workshop, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and I will send you back a zoom link invitation for the workshop. In the ~ 1 hour workshop, we will cover,
We hope to hear from you soon
