Adding a document to the documentary database

QuantiPest is a collaborative platform based on the contributions of the different partners. As a user, you can propose documents to the documentary online-database.

The word document is used here to define all sorts of information sources (websites, books, articles, protocols, programs...).
Go to the section named "Documents submission". Click on the 'Send a document’ link: a form will appear.

As an authentification is needed to submit a document you will need to create an account (even if you already have ldap information) by clicking on the 'create an account' link.
If your account exists, you will have to indicate your login and password.

The form contains different fields; the ones marked by a star (*) must be filled in, otherwise the submission is impossible.
Please make sure the essential information is given in the keywords-field: crop/pest concerned (if possible the common English name and the latin name), name of the method in the case of a protocol, general field dealt with (identification of symptoms, sampling...).
The description’ field is really important too, since its content will be visible whenever the document appears on the platform: it gives a first glimpse of the document and allows the user to determine whether it corresponds to what he is looking for. It thus has to be short and precise.
To complete the submission of your document, you can attach the document itself by uploading it. We advise you to convert it into a pdf-file before uploading. Please give this pdf-file the same name as the document (the title you filled in at the beginning of the form). In the case of a web-document, just copy the link. Do not forget to submit the document!
Very important:
Contributors may submit only documents that they own or otherwise have the right to submit. They may not submit documents that injure or violate the rights of any third party, including privacy, publicity, copyright, trademark, patent or other intellectual property rights.
Any submitted document has to be validated by the platform administrator before being published and available on the QuantiPest platform.
