Single YAML filesΒΆ

For submissions with no auxiliary files, it is possible to upload a single YAML file rather than an archive file comprising a submission.yaml file and multiple YAML data files. The single-YAML-file format was used for migration from the old HepData site in 2016. It is identical to the usual submission.yaml file, but the independent_variables and dependent_variables (that would normally be included in a separate YAML data file) are instead given directly in the relevant YAML document of the submission.yaml file, replacing the data_file key in that YAML document. (Note that the name, description and keywords properties must be present in addition to independent_variables and dependent_variables.)

Here is an example single YAML file. Upon upload, the single-YAML-file format will be split automatically into the usual submission.yaml file and multiple YAML data files.
