This storage scheme ensures that 1) there are multiple back-ups of the metadata and tabular data in different physical and cloud-based locations, 2) all C-CoMP members have access to facilitate direct and efficient collaboration, and 3) metadata and tabular data are publicly accessible on BCO-DMO and linked to domain repositories.
Instructions for submitting metadata and tabular data are shared below. Please submit metadata in the following order to avoid lags in data sharing.
C-CoMP Google Drive
We can temporarily store metadata and tabular data in the C-CoMP Google Drive to facilitate data sharing within the Center. This data will be archived once the metadata and tabular data has been deposited at BCO-DMO.
C-CoMP projects will be registered with BCO-DMO as part of the C-CoMP Program using the online submission tool. The Digital Coordinator can register projects on your behalf, but will ask you for additional information. At BCO-DMO, projects oversee a collection of one or more datasets.
Once your project is registered, individual datasets can be submitted and filed underneath the project.
