Summary

Electronic Supplements is a repository that holds supplemental material (data sets, maps, etc.) for published articles. This page serves as a guide for contributing authors.

Description

This repository is meant to serve as an option for authors to publish/store/disseminate supplemental material that journals are not able to accommodate.

How to submit

To submit a new entry, contributors should send an email to product@iris.washington.edu.

metadata.txt (required)

The metadata.txt file contains a list of key-value pairs defining the metadata for the entry. These are used for the common metadata in SPUD. The contents should be as follows:

  authors=[string]
  title=[string]
  year=[YYYY]
  journal=[string]
  volume=[string]
  citation=[string]
  journalurl=[string]    (URL to journal page)
  DOI=[doi]
  keywords=[string]
  url=[string]
  starttime=[YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS]       (start time of data used/studied)
  endtime=[time]         (end time of data used/studied)
  minlat=[float]
  maxlat=[float]
  minlon=[float]
  maxlon=[float]

manifest.txt (required)

The manifest.txt file contains a list of all files submitted with the product. Up to 6 of the files can be flagged to be displayed in the SPUD entry page and will be displayed in the order present in the manifest. Additionally, captions can be supplied with image files marked for display.

A file is flagged to be displayed by prefixing the file name with an = (equal sign). If the file is an image it may be followed by a – (dash) followed by a caption text, all on the same line. For simplicity, there can be no spaces in the files names marked for display. The contents should be as follows:

  =textfile1.txt
  =yourimage1.png - Figure 1. caption_of_description of image1.png
  =yourimage2.png - Figure 2. caption_of_description of image2.png
  =yourimage3.png - Figure 3. caption_of_description of image3.png
  =textfile2.txt
  metadata.txt
  manifest.txt
  dataselection.txt

Files to be displayed
The first six entries in manifest.txt prefixed with an = (equal sign) will be displayed on the SPUD detail page in the order specified.

It is highly recommended for the first entry to be a text file containing an overview of the supplemental material.

The following file extensions are recognized for display, all other file extensions will not be displayed:

  • .txt
  • .png
  • .jpg,.jpeg
  • .gif

dataselection.txt (optional)

A dataselection.txt file, if present, identifies any time series data using FDSN nomenclature that was used for the study. The intention is to a) explicitly document the data used and b) allow others to collect the same data.

The data selection should be a text file containing lines in the following format:

<Network> <Station> <Location> <Channel> <StartTime> <EndTime>

For example:

 TA A25A -- BHZ 2010-03-25T00:00:00 2010-04-01T00:00:00
 IU ANMO * BH? 2010-03-25T00:00:00 2010-04-01T00:00:00
 IU ANMO 10 HHZ 2010-03-25T00:00:00 2010-04-01T00:00:00
