Community Released Data Folders are required to have minimal metadata needed for citationattribution. We strongly encourage the use of additional metadata that describes the content of your dataset.

Apply metadata through the DE, using the Dublin Core metadata template. See Using Metadata in the DE for instructions on how to apply a metadata template or apply metadata in bulk. The Dublin Core template contains 22 fields, but only 7 of them are required: Title, Subject, Description, Rights, Creator (may be consortium), Publisher (automatically set to CyVerse Data Commons), and Date. In the Rights field, we recommend an open access license such as CC0 or ODC-PDL. See the Permanent Identifier FAQs page for more information on rights. You can use multiples of fields such as Creator, Contributor, or Subject.
