About / How To


An initial registration is required in order to use Emporion. This can be done via this form or directly over Shibboleth using the login information of your affiliated university or research institute. In order to ensure the accurate classification of your contributions and avoid misidentification, we ask you to provide your ORCID iD when registering. You will receive an activation link via email once you have filled out the form. Upon activation, you are able to login to Emporion at any time.

Document Upload

Once registered you are able to publish as many datasets and data papers as you like on Emporion in accordance with our publication guidelines. Please begin the publication process by logging in to the server. After entering and saving the bibliographic metadata of your paper, please upload the corresponding file(s) to Emporion using the menu fields “Actions” and “Add a data object”. Please note that contributions intended for publication will only be released after formal review. Furthermore, you are responsible for ensuring that neither copy- nor third-party rights are violated – for example in the context of joint publications. In signing Emporion’s publication contract, you grant Emporion a simple right of use for the distribution and public accessibility of your uploaded data sets or data papers on the Internet, as well as the supplementary right to make changes to the respective file format, in particular for long-term storage purposes. Due to the limited, purpose-bound transfer of these rights, you are free to otherwise use the content you have created as you wish.

Please send the completed publication contract with your electronic signature in PDF file format by e-mail to: emporion@gswg.info.
