How to Submit Data to GRIIDC

The following 3 step process is used to submit datasets to the GRIIDC system. This process includes data management planning, dataset documentation, and the creation of a dataset citation device. You may be prompted to log in to the GRIIDC System before accessing the following submission tools.

Step 1: Identify the Dataset
The GRIIDC Dataset Information Form (DIF) is a data management planning tool for both researchers and GRIIDC. DIFs should be completed soon after receiving GoMRI funding, during project planning and organization. DIFs are incorporated into the project Data Management Plan required by GRIIDC for GoMRI funded research projects. Information provided in the DIF will be used to pre-populate fields during dataset submission.

Step 2: Submit the Dataset
Once your dataset has been collected or generated, you can submit it directly to GRIIDC through GRIIDC Dataset Submission. Alternatively, if there is a disciplinary specific national data archive (e.g., NCBI GenBank) where the data is submitted and publicly available, the dataset's location can be provided to GRIIDC during dataset submission.

Step 3: Request a DOI
GRIIDC can assign a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to your dataset once the data files have been submitted to GRIIDC. A DOI is a stable, persistent sequence of numbers and letters that should be used to reference your dataset in publications and reports. It provides a method to cite your dataset that is recognized internationally and ensures you receive credit for citations. GRIIDC encourages all dataset providers to request a DOI for datasets. GoMRI funded researchers should use the GoMRI standard attribution statement when acknowledging GoMRI in your publications.
