- edit entries containing data on scientists submitted previously and add data on new scientists who are not in the data base.

Each partner first of all edits data on scientists from its own organization, then adds new data on scientists from its own organization involved in the Black Sea studies and lastly edits data on scientists from other organizations, which are not partners under the BSS Project.

Amount of work is equally distributed among organizations of each country, e.g. each partner from Russia edits and adds 25-30 descriptions on the average.

When none of the partners has information on certain scientists a decision to delete them from the data base is taken. Information on deletion is submitted to all the partners in the country. Deletion is made by RIHMI-WDC.
