N-Glycoproteomics, the system-wide study of glycans asparagine-linked to protein carriers, holds a unique and still largely untapped potential to provide deep insights into the complexity and dynamics of the heterogeneous N-glycoproteome. Despite the advent of innovative analytical and informatics tools aiding the analysis, N-glycoproteomics remains challenging and consequently largely restricted to specialised laboratories. Aiming to stimulate discussions of method harmonisation, data standardisation and reporting guidelines to make N-glycoproteomics more reproducible and accessible to the community, we here discuss critical considerations related to the design and execution of N-glycoproteomics experiments and highlight good practices in N-glycopeptide data collection, analysis, interpretation and sharing. Giving the rapid maturation and, expectedly, a wide-spread implementation of N-glycoproteomics capabilities across the community in future years, this piece aims to point out common pitfalls, to encourage good data sharing and documentation practices, and to highlight practical solutions and strategies to enhance the insight into the N-glycoproteome.
