Creating a New Project

Printer-friendly version

The Project Instance

  • Easy, go to Project Instance Creation page, fill in the information, and submit
    • Before you begin make sure that you have ALL of the information for this project. Who are collaborators, the PI's, the CO-PI's, sponsors/funders, description, etc...
    • This creates the instances of the project in the triple store
    • The image will default to the TWC logo you see in the upper left
  • Next we'll add two vocabulary terms in the Project vocabulary for this new project
  • Then we'll need to re-edit this new project main page to set the vocabulary term
  • And finally, you will want/need to create the "right sidebar navigation"; see the Right Sidebar Navigation instructions for specific help on that...
  • Also below are instructions on creating project sub pages for this new project


Project Terms

We'll be creating two terms for this project, one for the project, and one for internal project.

  1. project will be readable by all, editable by only the collaborators in the project
  2. internal project will be readable and editable by only the collaborators in the project
