OD004:
FAIR Data: The Technical and Social Benefits to the Researcher.


Session ID#: 28640

Session Description:
Researchers are challenged with preparing and complying with data management plans and open data mandates. The ocean science repository community has demonstrated the benefits of providing FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) data to its researchers through innovative alliances, robust metadata, and semantic connectivity. Challenges still exist in coordinating science policy, and research services across funders, institutions, and publishers that support the researcher’s data management needs. The convenors of this session request abstracts that focus on the value of FAIR data to the research community and the tools that support data discovery, compliance with data management plans, transparency, reproducibility, and research integrity.
