On April 30th, Gokce Ustunisik and Roger Nielsen hosted a workshop to present guidelines for submitting research datasets to the EarthChem Experimental Petrology community. The EarthChem Experimental Petrology community provides experimental trace element partitioning data from more than 5400 experiments and created the traceD research dataset template to create metadata and reporting standards for research datasets. The research datasets accepted by the Experimental Petrology community are stored in the Library of Experimental Phase Relations (LEPR).

The workshop goes over the history of the LEPR and of the traceDs effort for obtaining reliable trace element partitioning coefficients, how to complete a submission template and how to submit the dataset using the online submission form found here.
