Submission of data to BODC

We can now get DOIs for our data submissions to BODC – this is something that we have been pushing for.

Below is an email from Rob Thomas, and the necessary documents are attached.

Please find attached a document template and a data file header. If those involved in the WCO data could each aggregate into one file all of their data up to the end of 2011 and complete appropriate sections of the document prior to submitting the data to BODC, this should then meet the requirements for us to be able to issue DOIs for each data set.

The details should be pretty self explanatory but I’ve included some guidance notes at the end of the documentation to help. I appreciate there may be a little extra work this year, but subsequent years should just need the data appended with minor changes to the accompanying document and data file header.
