To submit a record to the Materials Cloud Archive:
Upon submission your record will be reviewed by the Materials Cloud moderators and you might be asked to make some changes to it.
The DOI associated with your record will resolve after your record has been approved. The DOI is unique per record and cannot be changed.
Please note that the moderators have the right in exceptional cases to retract your record or to reject your submission if the record is not in accordance with the Archive and Moderation policies.
For further questions, please consult the FAQs or contact us at: email@example.com.
The Materials Cloud Archive is a research data repository for the computational materials science community. With this goal in mind, submissions should be of computational materials science data, or experimental data that relates to published computational results. Submissions can also include codes, simulations tools, and AiiDA workflows related to computational materials science.
A minimal level of moderation helps to ensure that its content is relevant to these goals. The moderation policies described below are inspired by those of the arXiv preprint server.
Materials Cloud moderators will decline or suggest the removal of submissions that violate the , including:
If you disagree with a moderation decision, you should submit an appeal that explains your arguments clearly and succinctly.
The appeals process allows moderators additional time to reconsider a submission, but repeated appeals with no additional information cannot be considered. If you send an appeal and the moderators reach the same decision as they did initially, no further appeal should be submitted.
Materials Cloud moderators are volunteer subject specialists who have been approved by the Materials Cloud consortium.
Although the moderators may be publicly acknowledged, it is very inappropriate to contact any moderator directly regarding your submission. All communication about moderation decisions should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Moderators will not reply to personal correspondence regarding Materials Cloud submissions.
Current and past moderators of the Materials Cloud Archive are:
The Materials Cloud Archive is an open-access, repository for research data in computational materials science. Submissions to the Materials Cloud Archive are expected to be of interest, relevance, and value to the field.
