The NOMAD web-application (formaly known as the NOMAD Repository and Archive) allows you to publish materials science research data.

It enables the confirmatory analysis of materials data, their reuse, and repurposing. All data is available in their original raw format, e.g. as produced by an underlying simulation code, (Repository) and in a common, machine-processable, and well-defined data format (Archive). Data can be downloaded and used under the CC-BY-4.0 license.

Data can be uploaded without any barrier: results are accepted as they are; only author information and optional comments or references must be provided. We allow private curation of data before publishing; data can be published with a 3-year embargo and selectively shared. You can request digital objective identifiers (DOI's) for your datasets and cite your data.

Therse are short video tutorials that help you, if you are new to NOMAD.

Beyond electronic structure simulations

NOMAD was originally developed to manage data from electronic structure codes. Within the FAIRmat NDFI consortium, NOMAD is extended to support data from other areas of materials science as well. This includes data from synthesis, experiment, and other scales of computational materials science.

NOMAD Features?
Other NOMAD versions

There is a new version of NOMAD (1.1) that we currently provide as a beta version. This installation contains all of NOMAD's data and you can already use it to upload and publish more data. It will become the official NOMAD after a short beta phase.

We also provide an empty test version of NOMAD. You can use this to try the upload and publish process without any consequences. We will routinely void the test data.

You will find a read-only version of the old NOMAD version 0.10 below as well. You can continue to use this (under its previous URLs) if you still have API clients working with the old version.
