A wide range of submission templates are available for submitting data to the EarthChem Library. If a template does not exist yet for your data type, please contact us at info@earthchem.org.

Primary analytical data may be incorporated into EarthChem synthesis databases (e.g. PetDB) by EarthChem data managers if thematically appropriate.

Method Templates

Use these template to register your instrument calibration data.

Submit this template for publication with DOI ( EarthChem Library is preferred, but you can submit the method template to other repositories as well e.g.  protocols.io, Zenodo, etc.).

The DOI should be cited whenever you are publishing data associated with this technique.

Currently method templates are available for EPMA/SEM-EDS and an LA-ICP-MS method template is under development.

Community Templates

For specialized submissions please check EarthChem Communities for templates and specific submission guidelines.


Geochronology data such as (U-Th)/He, U-Pb, Ar-Ar, cosmogenic nuclides, and U-series data can be added to the Geochron System for better discoverability and direct interfacing with your instrument.

To receive data curation services, a permanent archive for your dataset and to be issued a DOI, please submit your Geochron files to the EarthChem Library.
