Enabling FAIR Data/CDF Repository Webinar - Part 1

The Council of Data Facilities (CDF) is hosting a set of webinars to review and discuss several repository specific concerns. 

Topics and Presenters

  1. The Enabling FAIR Data tenets for repositories (Presenter: Shelley Stall, AGU Senior Director for Data Leadership)
  2. The criteria used by Springer Nature to be included in their recommended repository list. Nature, Scientific Data, and Nature Geoscience are all journal signatories of the Enabling FAIR Data Commitment Statement. (Presenter: Varsha Khodiyar, Data Curation Manager, Springer Nature)
  3. Funder requirements for sharing data. (Presenter: TBD)
  4. The CoreTrustSeal Earth Space and Environmental Science Cohort. (Presenter: Rebecca Koskela, Ronin Institute, and Rorie Edmunds, Acting Executive Director of World Data System)

Intended Outcomes

  • Better awareness of these topics.
  • Opportunity for community to share concerns.
  • Constructive discussion.
  • Encouragement for more repositories to sign the Enabling FAIR Data Commitment Statement and put into place plans to comply with the tenets. 

It is hoped that through these webinars, and additional discussions, a set of best practices for repositories on how to address these topics, and other repository requirements might be developed using the platform of the Council of Data Facilities to convene the discussion.

You are invited to join the webinars or review the recordings at a more convenient time, and help to work through the challenges of the integrated workflow between journals and repositories. Recordings will be made available following the webinars and shared on the CDF webpage and through follow-up emails.
