To contribute information on a science program and its data, take the following steps:

  1. Create an account or sign in to an existing account.
  2. Fill out this form to submit information on a new program. There is also a link to this form at the bottom of the list of programs.
  3. After you submit the program, you will see its information page. At the bottom is a link to a form to submit data for the program.
  4. Once you have submitted a program, you may edit its information at any time by selecting it from the list of programs. You may also add, edit, and remove data for the program. No one but you and catalog administrators will be able to edit the programs you submit.
  5. Before your program becomes visible to everyone, it must be approved by a catalog administrator. Until it is, you will see a "Pending Approval" message beside your program in the list and on its information page.

To update or correct information:

Program entries can be edited only by the person who created the entry, or the site administrator. If a program listing exists that needs to be corrected or updated, here are the steps:

  1. Follow Step 1 above to create an account or sign in.
  2. Follow Step 2 to create a new entry, but use this naming convention: Use "XX"+program abbreviation. For example, to correct Argo, create a new entry named "XXArgo".
  3. Continue with the rest of the instructions.

Once you have submitted the info and it has been reviewed, the new entry will replace the old entry and you will be able to come back and further edit this entry as you like.
