Provider Best Practices: List Services Using The Experiment Hierarchy

November 12, 2013 | Posted by Brianne Villano in New Feature |

Providers on Science Exchange can easily list service offerings on their facility storefront for researchers to order. Our new experiment hierarchy makes it even easier.

Your Management section currently allows you to add service offerings using a text field that has real-time drop-down results of services that have the same keywords.

Now that the hierarchy is integrated into the site, you can reference it while you’re adding new services to see where your offering fits. You can do this one of two ways:

1. If your service is analytical rather than experimental, look under the Analytical Services branch of the hierarchy.

From here, you can click through the analytical services links on the left to find the most specific service you can that corresponds to what you want to list.

2. Experimental services are more common than analytical, so if your service offering is experimental, look in the Experimental Services section of the hierarchy.

See a service you want to list that’s already present in the hierarchy? Fantastic! That means that all the work has been done for a proper integration of your service into our relational “tree” of services. So if someone searches for a service that’s slightly different from what you offer, your service will still show up in the search results.

If you can’t find a pre-existing entry in our hierarchy for a service you want to list, don’t worry. Just email [email protected] with the service name and our experts will find a home for it and help you list!
