Our goal at the WDC is to make data submission easy and efficient for you, to help you preserve your data as a legacy that can be used by your colleagues today AND by future generations of scientists.
The WDC has made a long term commitment to preserve your data and make it available to others. Once contributed your data will be available to others as a set of files organized by your name, date, and contribution number (accessible via the WWW, FTP, and also on diskette). Your data may also be imported into a relational database and thus accessible using database queries.Data Policy - Frequently Asked Questions:
