      • Announce paper to RHIC - 1 week

    • HepData procedure
      • Before the paper is announced to RHIC, prepare data tables  (PA)
      • After a paper is submitted, upload and review data tables on HEPData (PA and GPC chair)
        • Frank will create an entry on HepData, and assign PA as the uploader and GPC chair as the reviewer. The GPC chair will make sure the uploaded data table match the data presented in the paper, and follow the guidance of significance digits (https://drupal.star.bnl.gov/STAR/pwg/common/policies/significant-digits-hepdata-table). Once satisfied, the GPC chair manually approves each data table
