Pilot projects for publishing and citing ocean data
MetadataShow full item record
In the ocean sciences, a project was started in 2008 to bring together scientists, data managers, and library experts to explore means to (1) increase the submission of data to data centers, (2) make data more accessible for reuse, (3) link data more closely to traditional journal publications, and (4) create a system that gives more credit to data generators. This project is a joint effort among the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research, the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, and the Marine Biological Laboratory Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (MBLWHOI) Library.
