Rules for submission

Antibodypedia supports submission of antibodies, associated validations, references and comments. Based on available validation data and references antibodies are scored and listed.

Provider submissions of antibodies
Antibodypedia allows providers of antibodies, both commercial and academic, to submit antibody product information, validation data and links to antibody-specific information through the interface (for instructions see 'For providers'. Providers can at any time withdraw particular antibodies from the database and all user data and comments will be concurrently removed.

Please note that antibodies cannot be classified as 'Supportive data available' unless validation data are available on provider antibody pages or in Antibodypedia. However, it is possible to list antibodies as 'Recommended by provider' for applications in which their use has been validated but experimental results are not available.

Validation submissions
Independent users can submit their own, annotated, primary experimental data on antibody performance using application-specific 'validation scores'. Due to the subjective nature of validations, an independent advisory board reviews the information before posting it. we additionally request users to submit the protocol used in result generation to facilitate review and community commentary. Validations can be submitted here or through the links on the specific antibody page.

Reference submissions
Independent users and antibody provider can enter published references reporting on the use of a specific antibody. Published references with data generated with reagents listed in Antibodypedia can be submitted here or through links on the specific antibody page.

Comment submissions
Independent users and antibody providers can enter comments about antibody performance on specific applications to assist in dissemination of information about reagents among the scientific community. Comments can be submitted here or through links on the specific antibody page, as supportive or non-supportive. Comments are pre-moderated before posting.
