SUBMITTING CONTENT TO THE DCO COMMUNITY PORTAL
The DCO web portal, comprising a Community Portal and Data Portal, is intended to promote DCO community interaction at many levels. Content for the Community Portal is managed by the DCO Engagement Team. The public face of DCO, deepcarbon.net, communicates your research, fieldwork, events, and workshops to the broader scientific community and beyond. The Community Portal also offers access to DCO Groups, an accessible place for sharing planning documents, document archives, and event listings, etc. The Engagement Team works closely with Engagement Liaisons and DCO Community leaders to encourage regular submission of content by members of each Community, refine the language for public audiences, if necessary, and determine which content is most appropriate to post on the DCO homepage, Community pages, and/or the DCO newsletter.
In lieu of logging in and submitting content directly to the DCO Community Portal, you may send an email with all relevant information to Katie Pratt, DCO Engagement Team Communications Director, email@example.com, +1 401-874-6146.
TYPES OF CONTENT
Content submitted to the Community Portal populates the DCO homepage and Community pages of the DCO web portal, and also serves as content for monthly DCO newsletters.
Research - short articles summarizing DCO research recently published in the scientific literature, or otherwise made publicly available. These may appear on the DCO homepage, DCO Community pages, and/or the DCO newsletter.
Highlights - announcements or reports of DCO-related activities, including workshops, meetings, and fieldwork, and notices of new project funding successes, requests for proposals, or major honors or awards. These may appear on the DCO homepage, DCO Community pages, and/or the DCO newsletter.
