    The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) is a publicly accessible earth science data repository created to curate, publicly serve (publish), and archive digital data and information from biological, chemical and biogeochemical research conducted in coastal, marine, great lakes and laboratory environments. The BCO-DMO repository works closely with investigators funded through the NSF OCE Division’s Biological and Chemical Sections and Antarctic Organisms & Ecosystems. The office provides services that span the full data life cycle, from data management planning support and DOI creation, to archiving with appropriate national facilities. Recently, more and more of the projects submitted to BCO-DMO represent modeling efforts which further increase our knowledge of the chemical and biological properties within the ocean ecosystem. But, as a repository traditionally focused on observational data as a primary research output, what roles should domain-specific data repositories play in this field? Recognizing code as a first class research product, how should repositories support the discovery, access and reuse of code and software used in hypothesis driven research? We feel the time is at hand for the community to begin a concerted and holistic approach to the curation of code and software. Such strategy development should begin with asking what is the appropriate output to curate? What is the minimum metadata required for re-use? How should code be stored and accessed? Should repositories support or facilitate peer reviewing code? The answers to these questions will better inform domain-specific repositories on how to better manage code as a first class research asset in order to support the scientific community. This presentation will explore these topics, inviting discussion from the audience to advance a collective strategy.

    Biological & Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office : a domain-specific repository for oceanographic data from around the world [poster]

    The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) is a domain-specific digital data repository that works with investigators funded under the National Science Foundation’s Division of Ocean Sciences and Office of Polar Programs to manage their data free of charge. Data managers work closely with investigators to satisfy their data sharing requirements and to develop comprehensive Data Management Plans, as well as to ensure that their data will be well described with extensive metadata creation. Additionally, BCO-DMO offers tools to find and reuse these high-quality data and metadata packages, and services such as DOI generation for publication and attribution. These resources are free for all to discover, access, and utilize. As a repository embedded in our research community, BCO-DMO is well positioned to offer knowledge and expertise from both domain trained data managers and the scientific community at large. BCO-DMO is currently home to more than 9000 datasets and 900 projects, all of which are or will be submitted for archive at the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). Our data holdings continue to grow, and encompass a wide range of oceanographic research areas, including biological, chemical, physical, and ecological. These data represent cruises and experiments from around the world, and are managed using community best practices, standards, and technologies to ensure accuracy and promote re-use. BCO-DMO is a repository and tool for investigators, offering both ocean science data and resources for data dissemination and publication.

    Curating and providing open access to research data is a collaborative process. This process may be thought of as a life cycle with data passing through various phases. Each phase has its own associated actors, roles, and critical activities. Good data management practices are necessary for all phases, from proposal to preservation.
