IsoBank is a multi-organization effort to build a common repository for stable isotope data. Our goal is to provide a common repository for stable isotope measurement data originating from any context, and to support easy location and access to this data by the research community. The IsoBank repository provides a searchable database of stable isotope measurements based on a rich metadata schema developed through community input from researchers who generate and use stable isotope data.

We are currently accepting deposit of open data sets documenting stable isotope measurements across all disciplines. We encourage potential depositors to explore the extensive metadata model, and compare it to their current data structures, before beginning the ingest process. IsoBank is in an early access phase, and actively solicits contributions and feedback from the community. We are particularly interested in receiving feedback on the ingest and search processes within IsoBank from a diverse community of researchers in various disciplines and with data originating from diverse sources.

IsoBank is a collaborative project of the Texas Advanced Computing Center at The University of Texas at Austin, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the University of New Mexico, and the University of Utah, and is funded by the National Science Foundation.
