All pre-conference workshops required separate registration. That registration process is now CLOSED and this workshop is full.  

Different stakeholders, different motivations, different funding models, with one common goal that scientific advancement requires well-documented, and easily discoverable data (and other research objects) that are reusable.  The Earth, space and environmental sciences (ESES) has established a coalition of journals, repositories and infrastructure convened by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) to develop common practices and policies that ensure data supporting a publication meets this common goal of data reusability.

This project is focused on using existing, proven guidance from communities such as FORCE11 to adopt across an entire domain.  In this session we will provide an overview of how FORCE11’s recommendations provided solutions to the ESES community, how we developed our Commitment Statement and Implementation Guidelines, the challenges we had to overcome to stay on target, and our plans for implementation internationally.
