Community Released Data folders are available for evolving datasets that individuals or communities want to make available as quickly as possible for research and reuse, especially within CyVerse analysis platforms. Community Released Data folders are intended for datasets that are growing or changing frequently or that may not need long-term preservation. For more information on the policies that apply to Community Released Data, see the CyVerse Data Policy.
Data can transition from Community Released Data to CyVerse Curated Data by Requesting a Permanent Identifier in the Data Commons.
All Community Released data folders are located in /iplant/home/shared and are visible to anyone at http://datacommons.cyverse.org/browse/iplant/home/shared or to registered CyVerse users in the Discovery Environment under "Community Data".
Step 1: Request the data folder
After your request is approved, the folder will be created in to /iplant/home/shared and you will have ownership permission. The folder will not be made public until metadata is applied.
