Over the past few years we’ve seen a lot of data sets go into tDAR. In that time, we’ve learned a great deal about what makes a data set ready for archiving, and conversely, what some of the common problem-spots are. Within tDAR, we try to catch many of these errors and provide users with warnings. We want to make the uploading process as easy as possible! We’ve put together a few tips to avoid the most common issues we see when archiving a CSV, TAB or Excel data set. Click here to view all the tips.

Have you discovered any shortcuts that make it easier for you to upload data sets? We would love to hear them! Send us an email at comments@tdar.org with your tips, comments or concerns.
