Metrology for climate relevant volatile organic compounds - MetClimVOC

A community to share datasets, papers and guidelines contributing to improve the traceability, accuracy and comparability of measurements of atmospheric volatile organic compounds (VOCs) relevant for climate. The main goal of the community, created by the European Project EURAMET-EMPIR 19ENV06 MetClimVOC (, is to provide open access FAIR data with focus on metrological aspects of atmospheric VOCs measurements.

The collection includes mainly data generated in the framework of the project MetClimVOC from measurements, calibrations, comparisons and validations. In addition, datasets originated out of the project but contributing clearly to improve the metrology of VOC measurements are accepted (see curation policy).

The collection is suitable for use by research groups working on the following topics: climate change, atmospheric chemistry, reactive gases, VOCs and spectrometry, as well as for atmospheric monitoring networks and bodies, and manufacturers of instruments, gas handling devices, gas cylinders and VOCs dynamic methods (diffusion, permeation…).

Curation policy:
  1. If an uploaded document and/or dataset has an existing DOI, it will be kept. A Zenodo DOI will be attributed to documents and/or datasets without existing DOI.
  2. Items with Open Access remain Open Access.
  3. Items must not contain any copyright restrictions.
  4. All files should be able to be opened without any passcode restrictions.
  5. No Personal Health Information or sensitive data can be included.
  6. All information needs to be in English.
  7. Datasets will be licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-No Derivatives 4.0 (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0)
  8. Datasets should include descriptive names for columns and rows.
  9. A README file must be provided together with the dataset including at least the following information:
    • Title: it should be descriptive of the dataset
    • Author(s): name, institutional affiliation, email address and/or ORCID
    • Abstract: short description of the dataset
    • Methods: any methodological information (i.e. analyser, compounds…), including calibration and traceability information, which may help others to understand how the dataset was generated.
    • Funding information (e.g. in the case of datasets generated in the framework of the project MetClimVOC, this information will include the terms "EMPIR", "European Union (EU)" and "Horizon 2020" as required in article 29.2 of the EMPIR Grant Agreement)
    • Related works: e.g. publication DOI, other datasets, code…

The community curator will use the information included in the readme file to generate the metadata of the dataset. The metadata will be human and machine-readable (e.g. JSON).

    To add one of your existing records to the community, edit the record, add this community under the "Communities" section, save, and finally publish.
  • The community curator will then be notified to either accept or reject your upload (see community curation policy below).
  • If your upload is rejected by the curator, it will still be available on Zenodo, just not in this community.
