Resources FOR RESEARCHERs
We host facilities and field research infrastructure to support ongoing and new research. Research infrastructure is managed by our staff to generate data that is quality controlled and freely available.

Decide what to archive
Best practice is to archive quality-controlled raw data (rather than calculated fields)
Write abstract and methods
Prepare two separate Microsoft Word files (.docx): one for the abstract, one for the methods.

Share your engagement efforts with us!
We would love to know how you are engaging scientists, students, and the general public in your work. If you have an outreach project, please tell us all about it with this form. Or email directly to: email@example.com
We'd love to have a copy of any photos of your outreach work! Please upload them here.

Acknowledging people & data in your publications
All of our data products are released to the public and may be freely copied, distributed, edited, remixed, and built upon under the condition that you provide acknowledgement.
Publications, models and data products that make use of these data sets must include proper acknowledgement, including citing data sets in a similar way to citing a journal article. Here is an overview of why citing data is important.
The following acknowledgment should accompany any publication that makes use of Niwot resources: Logistical support and/or data were provided by the NSF-supported Niwot Ridge LTER program (NSF DEB – 1637686)
