Hi all,

The AGU deadline is coming up soon. Help the proposed new ESIP Data Science and Stewardship committee get off to a strong start. We seek abstracts on a broad range of topics on data preservation and stewardship..

IN22 Issues in Scientific Data Preservation and Stewardship

Convened by:
Mark Parsons, Rama Ramapriyan, Ruth Duerr

Description: While data grow more voluminous and complex, there is increased public scrutiny of science and its methods. There is call for more transparency and better scientific reproducibility, which requires robust data stewardship. This session seeks submissions on challenges and solutions for effectively stewarding data through the full data life cycle. We seek new developments in identification and dissemination of best practices; strategies and methods for fully and openly tracking data provenance; data citation and other mechanisms for ensuring credit, accountability, and reproducibility; mechanisms for capturing full data context in preservation description information; and innovative approaches to creating and maintaining archive packages.
