Earth and Environmental Data Repositories: Considerations for Choosing the Most Appropriate





Session ID#: 26578

Session Description:
As Earth Science research funders’ expectations for sharing of research products increase, scientists grapple with how to manage their data, software, and analytical workflows to ensure their persistence. Selecting an appropriate repository may be a challenge for researchers who must consider the communities a repository serves, the type of products it can house, how the data will be shared by other repositories and/or published through larger aggregation and integration efforts, licensing, persistent identifier assignment, and quality of tools the repository offers for discovery and reuse. Researchers may also be unable to meet repository documentation and formatting requirements if they lack informatics expertise. Presenters in this session will introduce their repositories with the aim of providing recommendations to scientists about where to archive their research products. The session also invites presentations on tools that help scientists document and submit their data, or on lessons learned or common problems encountered.
