Submission templates

BODC provides metadata templates to encourage data submission.

Metadata template

The metadata template provided is intended to streamline data submission and you are encouraged to provide them with your data file(s) when providing data to BODC. They cover the information that should accompany data to ensure their long-term usefulness and are intended to provide the information to describe the data in the file(s) you submit.

The metadata template can also be used as a checklist to ensure all the information required is provided with your data submission.
