3. Review

Once you have added your metadata and uploaded all of your data, let the Hub know and they will then review your dataset(s). They may ask further curation questions to make sure your data is easily findable in search queries. You may then let the Hub know it is approved for release or ask the Hub to embargo the data until a future date (ie, when your publication is released).
