Welcome to the Phenol-Explorer Deposition Gateway

We have added a new way to contribute your data to our database. Starting with Polyphenol content values, you can sign-up as a registered depositor. When you publish new content values, we provide a simple and intuitive interface for depositing your data.

Welcome to Phenol-Explorer deposition gateway! From this interface you can upload your published data to be incorporated into Phenol-Explorer.

The deposition gateway allows you to deposit new data on polyphenol content in foods. Data for deposition is required to be published or accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. If you think that some important composition information is missing from our database, you can use this gateway to submit the data that you would like to see in Phenol-Explorer. We will be more than happy to review and integrate it into our database. You will be providing us with an important contribution to the development of Phenol-Explorer, making it both more comprehensive and up-to-date.

There are 5 simple steps to follow, which you will be guided through when depositing:

  1. Create a new account or log in using an existing one. When creating a new account, you will receive a confirmation email once we have reviewed your account details (within a few working days).
  2. Check whether your polyphenols and food sources are already in Phenol-Explorer. If not, you will be able to add them.
  3. Enter your publication details. You can enter the PubMed ID of the publication to automatically retrieve the citation information, or manually add the citation information if the article is not online yet.
  4. Fill out the deposition form with the following required information for each content value: experimental method, compound (polyphenol), source (food name), concentration value, and units.
  5. Submit!

Once submitted, the data will be stored in a temporary repository (it won’t be visible on the public website yet). Our curators will review your deposition and notify you by email with the status of the review (accepted, should be corrected, rejected). Your data and its status will be accessible and visible for you when you log into the deposition gateway.

We will merge the accepted food composition data into Phenol-Explorer database at regular intervals. You will be informed by email when you data has been integrated.

Thank you very much again for your contribution. If you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to use the feedback form.
