Session ID#: 25933

Session Description:
Data created and used by scientists should be managed, curated, and archived in trustworthy data repositories to enable their reuse and ensure integrity of science. Trustworthiness and sustainability of repositories raises important organizational, technical, financial, and legal challenges. Their reliability and durability depends on the quality and transparency of their data management processes, the use of established standards, their efforts for long-term preservation and how suitable their services are for their designated community. Certification of repositories—such as with the Core Trustworthy Data Repository Requirements ( developed by the World Data System and Data Seal of Approval—is an independent and objective evaluation of repositories reliability and durability which helps researchers, funders, librarians, publishers ascertain which repositories to use. AGU participants interested in data stewardship are invited to join this panel to learn from and share experiences with data repositories stakeholders about the key issues facing data repositories including certification.
