Sample Requests

Requesting samples

BOSCORF has an open policy regarding sample requests from academic researchers and doctoral students. We supply thousands of marine sediment samples annually to researchers all over the world. Please carefully read the Sample Distribution Policy and the instructions on how to request samples from the repository detailed below.

Before you request

After you have received samples

  • When you publish on the samples you are requested to acknowledge the BOSCORF in your manuscript. This assists us with documenting the outcomes from the facility to the scientific community and justify the funding we receive.
  • Please send us copies (PDFs), or links to published content that use samples hosted in our collection.
