New Updates to the Data Submission Templates

October 2011. The Data Submission Templates have been updated to improve ease of use. The new templates feature more explanatory material, examples, and links to information and vocabularies. The templates are customized for different analytical techniques (e.g. electron microprobe, mass spec) and materials (e.g. bulk sample, mineral, melt inclusion, vent fluid) and help authors to document their data according to the recommendations of the Editors' Roundtable. Authors can also add their own fields to the templates.


These templates provide a standardized way to submit data to GfG, including our Geochemical Resource Library (GRL) and the GfG databases PetDB, SedDB, and VentDB.


The templates are available at We welcome any feedback for improvement at!
