​​Contribute Data

Thank you for considering a data contribution to the ISCN database. To date, 22 datasets have been contributed by members of the scientific community and the value of this data resource will only grow with broader participation. Rest assured that any data you submit to the ISCN are protected by a data policy.


Data contributions to the ISCN are ingested using a system of templates with standardized variable names (and some controlled vocabularies). Depending on the types of data you have, the templates you need will vary substantially. To make data contribution as streamlined as possible, we have developed a 3-step process that will help you prepare and upload your data:

Step #1: Fill out the questionnaire below to customize the full version of the template into one that is specific to your dataset. (Questionnaire is temporarily located here).

Step #2: Follow instructions and examples in the
data template users' guide to move data from your spreadsheets into the template file.

Step #3: When you are ready to submit your template, please visit the Upload Data Page​.

*We strongly recommend contacting ISCN support before preparing a dataset for contribution, in order to discuss important details and to ensure that your time (and ours) is efficiently spent.
