Director of Product Management Tony Alves recently joined around 100 stakeholders from across the Earth and Space Science research ecosystem in Alexandria, VA, to discuss Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reproducible (FAIR) data. The delegation included representatives from funder, repository, publisher, scientist, librarian, and vendor organizations.
The project seeks to develop and implement best practices and standards that will connect researchers, publishers, and data repositories in the Earth and Space Sciences to enable FAIR data, thus accelerating scientific discovery and enhancing the integrity, transparency, and reproducibility of this data. The principles behind FAIR data were developed by the FORCE11 group. Learn more about FAIR data.
