You do not have to start from a blank page.
We encourage you to check the contribution manual our templates for all the documents to be included together with a data model. Or the online editor or directly from a keyvalues example or from a csv example.
Recommended steps before submitting a new data model
1.- Review the contribution manual (especially pages 8-16)
2.- Check that your data model validates payloads in key-value format here https://smartdatamodels.org/index.php/check-a-schema-validates-a-payload/
3.- Check that you have properly documented your data model here https://smartdatamodels.org/index.php/data-models-contribution-api/
4.- See a template https://github.com/smart-data-models/data-models/blob/master/templates/dataModel_for_submision/schema.json
5.- See a real valid data model in any of the domains.
