Once you submit your dataset for review, an ADC curator will be notified. She will:

  1. Review your metadata and contact you if further information is needed to ensure the data is sufficiently described

  2. Add ADC and National Agricultural Library Thesaurus (NALT) keywords to enhance retrievability, making your dataset easier to find in the repository

  3. Obtain a DOI if your dataset does not already have one

  4. Contact you once your data goes live on ADC so that you can review and approve the final record

    • Note that ADC reserves the right to deny publishing your dataset for any reason.
