Sharing or publishing data via GEOMAR OPeNDAP and Download Service
To assign a persistent identifier (handle) for sharing or publishing your data via GEOMAR OPeNDAP and HTTP-Download (THREDDS) Services you have to provide the information requested in the form below.
The data management team will then contact you and provide instructions how to proceed.
We will provide a handle as a persistent identifier for your data (same technique as DOI) which will always redirect users to the proper site at GEOMAR services providing access to data and metadata!
In order to prepare a data submission please read and follow the instructions in our "GEOMAR Guide for Handling Supplementary Data".
You have the following choices for data sharing:
a. Open Access - listed in public overview pages - full visibility e.g. data.geomar.de
b. Access only for collaboration partners in ongoing research projects - no visibility
c. Access only for reviewers until publication of peer reviewed articles / data - no visibility
NOTICE: Anyone knowing the handle has access to the data! Do not distribute the handle in order to keep your data private (see b. and c. above)! Please use always the persistent handle link when citing your data! The syntax for the displayed/printed CITATION variant is for example:hdl:20.500.12085/4e104bfe-aa9e-4d1e-99fa-5a7d1b9f9313 The syntax for the clickable HTML variant is then the following URL:https://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12085/ec430a5c-1930-4a87-bb1f-973162c2a135
