How to submit data

For information and conditions for the inclusion of your data in the NORMAN databases, please contact Mr. Jaroslav SLOBODNIK.

To include data into the NORMAN database, DATA COLLECTION TEMPLATES (DCT) in excel were developed for each of the matrix. These DCTs can be downloaded at https://www.norman-network.com/nds/empodat/downloadDCT.php.

The completed DCTs should be sent to the NORMAN database development team: norman@ei.sk with copy to slobodnik@ei.sk, for further processing and upload to the web-database.

Large datasets, available in other then excel format can be uploaded as well, after communication with the NORMAN team – to check the structure of data, availability of obligatory information and to agree on the optimal way of the data transfer.
