A community would benefit my project, how do I create a community?

To create a ScienceBase community, please e-mail the following information to

  • Community name
  • Community name acronym or short reference
  • Description of the community and its mission
  • Keywords, or tags, describing the community
  • Users associated with the community (full name, e-mail address, affiliation). These users will have editing permissions to the community
  • Community manager(s) (full name, e-mail address, affiliation). Please specify at least one person as the community manager. These users will serve as points of contact for the community
  • For non-USGS users working in partnership with USGS, at least one USGS employee should be listed as a Community Manager that will also serve as a point of contact for the community.
