Data publication in OBIS
In this training module you will learn more about metadata standards in OBIS and how to publish metadata as well as the actual data via the Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT).
First, let's learn about metadata standards. Please read the EML chapter in the OBIS manual and take the Quiz.
When the Quiz is completed successfully, read the IPT chapter in the OBIS manual, which explains how you can publish a dataset. When you have finished reading this chapter, you can start publishing your (test) dataset and metadata using the OBIS training IPT instance at http://ipt.iobis.org/training/. Request a user login by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested to learn more about how to publish a data paper making use of EML in e.g. a Pensoft journal, you can read this article: https://riojournal.com/articles.php?id=13088&instance_id=3548166.
