Publication in ODC-SCI

The ODC-SCI community has established a unique process and requirements to release a dataset to the public with a DOI. The process may take a few days, but ensures higher quality of the shared data and that data is FAIR.

In addition to having your data ready for DOI, the ODC-SCI community has created a minimal set of variables required for publication. Make sure you include them before you start the process!

The final publishing step involves a two-step review process by the ODC-SCI Editorial Board and Data Team. The length of the review process depends on various factors including:

  • Whether the Dataset is within the scope of ODC-SCI

  • Dataset formatting

  • Completeness of the dataset metadata

  • Completeness of dataset-associated documents (i.e. data dictionary).
