JPL's Open Data Repository is in its Phase 1 release since September 2022. It is designed to host data sets associated with publications, to be accessed by reviewers, researchers, and others from outside of JPL. Please follow the steps detailed in the Cosmos JPL Open Repository article to submit data.
As of late 2020, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) recommends its authors to deposit data sets related to publications in the following priorities:
Some of the AGU journals have specific guidance for data. Check the AGU Data for Authors pages for detail.
The NASA Open Data Portal and CaltechDATA are the two equivalent repositories for JPL authors to deposit data sets associated with publications.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your data set(s) is ready, and include the signed Certificate and the DOI Request form. No need to attach the data set yet. One of the library staff will contact you to determine the best way to get the data.
If you are submitting data sets to other repositories, you still need to have the data sets certified with the signed Certificate. Please email the Certificate to email@example.com. Follow the instructions on your chosen repository for submitting data.
Please have answers to these questions ready:
3. Row Label (Describe what each row in the data set represents, if applicable):
4. Category (select one): Aerospace, Applied Science, No category, Apps, Earth Science, Management/Operations, Raw Data, Software, Space Science
5. Any tags/keywords:
6. Data Provided by (Individual or Organization):
7. Contact Name:
8. Contact Email:
9. Private Contact (an email that won’t be exposed to the public, but will be used when users click the ‘Contact Dataset Owner’ button. Can be the same as 8.):
10. Homepage/source link (webpage that references or describes your data):
12. Bureau Code (if known):
13. Program Code (if known):
After the JPL Library reaches out to NASA Open Data Portal, there will be a facilitated email discussion to confirm any further specifications of your data set. NASA Open Data Portal may require you to fill out additional information about your data set in a standard form, to ensure its long-term usability and preservation.
After interacting with NASA Open Data Portal, your dataset will be posted! You can now share the URL handle with the publisher, so they can include it as a link for public access to your dataset.
