You can store your data files either in the Bolin Centre Database or somewhere else. If you prefer to store your data files in the Bolin Centre Database, and if the total file size is smaller than 10 GB, you can upload data directly in the Data Entry Form if you are connected to the Stockholm University computer network.
If your dataset is large or if you are not connected to the Stockholm University network, please let us know so that we can provide information on how you shall upload them. If you prefer to store your data files somewhere else, your metadata should include an internet address leading to the data.
If your data volume is large we ask you consider to make some reduction. Primarily, we ask you to keep the data values but reduce the file sizes by:
- Compressing data
- Reducing data precision
For very large data we also ask you to consider to reduce the data volume by publishing only a meaningful subset. Some ways of doing that could be the following.
- Parameters subset
- Regional subset
- Temporal subset
- Mixture of complete data for some parameters, but reduced for other
- Summary statistics of raw data (processed data)
- Figure or table data
- Needed for the publication
