Sharing your records with us

Schedule in sufficient time for data management at the end of your project. Set yourself a reminder to send us the data.

The data collected by researchers and students is high quality. If we received all of this data, our database would be even more useful to you than it is now.

Our preferred method is for you to send us an Excel spreadsheet of your records at regular intervals. You can send data to us at any time of year. We continuously update our database.
