Submit Data to PANGAEA
Welcome to the PANGAEA data submission system. Any data from earth and life sciences are accepted. We highly appreciate you to archive and publish your data with PANGAEA.
When you start the data submission process, you will be redirected to the PANGAEA issue tracker that will assist you in providing metadata and uploading data files. Any communication with our editors will go through this issue tracker. For more details about the submission workflow see our tutorial.
Please note: All data and metadata are quality checked, harmonized, and processed for machine readability, which allows efficient and reliable re-usage of your data. Depending on the extent and complexity of your data submission the editorial process and minting of DOI names might therefore take up to several months. Due to the high volume of submissions, it is unfortunately not possible to answer questions about the current processing status.
