When you submit content for publication, the data curation officers in Digital Library Services review the content, focusing on the metadata. The data curators will then suggest edits to the metadata, from small changes (such as correcting typos) to adding new keywords, or advising that supplementary documentation (such as interview schedules, code books, variable lists, etc.) are uploaded alongside the data files. The curators will not check the data files for accuracy, as we trust that students and academics will only upload the correct data files.

All the changes suggested by the data curators are entirely voluntary, and the uploader may insist at any time that no further changes be made and the data be published as-is.
