All standard data formats accepted. We’re working on a web submission form that will allow you to directly upload your data to Neotoma. Because all data has to undergo some amount of processing before it can be added to the Neotoma relational database, uploaded data will be temporarily stored with basic metadata in the Pending Data repository.
There are two ways to contribute data to Neotoma:
- Pollen: Eric Grimm or Jack Williams
- Diatoms: Don Charles
- Ostracodes: Alison Smith
- Insects: Allan Ashworth
- Vertebrates: Russ Graham or Jessica Blois
- Organic Geochemistry: Jon Nichols
- Isotopes: Suzanne Pilaar Birch
- Packrat middens: Kate Rylander
If you are writing a grant proposal, and are planning to use Neotoma as the long-term and public-access archive for your data, we’ve developed some draft text that you are welcome to use and modify (see link below). Note that the US National Science Foundation now requires a Data Management Plan for all proposals.
