Enabling FAIR Data in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences - AGU and Community
Convener: Shelley Stall
Tue, 10 Apr, 12:15–13:15 / Room 0.15
Provide an update on the "Enabling FAIR Data" project. This project is a community-driven effort convened by the American Geophysical Union (AGU). The purpose is to make scientific data open and FAIR across the Earth, space, and environmental science community. The FAIR Guiding Principles promote that data (including software and other research products) are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.
This project provides common guidelines, recommendations, and policies for all journals and repositories in support of data (and other digital research products) being submitted and preserved in repositories with proper citation in the scholarly paper. This will allow data to be discoverable as a digital research product and not embedded in a supplement with inadequate metadata.
