SciCat ingestion approaches

Ingesting metadata is one crucial step in the FAIR journey. Being very facility-specific, it is not possible to come up with a standard ingestion process and usually, every facility develops its own mechanism. Here, we provide two approaches, from facilities using SciCat, of the existing ingestion process, that the reader can take inputs from. A further, more generic approach shows how to interact with the RESTful SciCat APIs to trigger an ingestion process, which serves as a starting point for facilities developing their own ingestion.
