Call for Nominations: WDS Scientific Committee 2021–2024

The term of the current WDS Scientific Committee (WDS-SC) will expire at the end of June 2021. The International Science Council (ISC) and WDS would therefore like to call on our respective members, as well as partners organizations concerned with scientific data stewardship, to nominate new members of the Scientific Committee. Nominations of early career and female scientists or experts are strongly encouraged.

The WDS-SC is the governing body of WDS as defined in its Constitution. It is composed of internationally recognized and leading researchers and experts in all aspects of scientific data. SC members are appointed in their personal capacity normally for a three-year term that is renewable once, with attention to geographical, disciplinary and gender balance. In addition, at least four members are drawn from representatives of WDS Member Organizations. The bios of current SC members are available online

More information regarding the role and responsibilities of committee members can be found here.  Please see here for a document outlining their expected workload commitments.

If you would like to nominate an expert for this committee, please complete this Nomination Form to be sent to the WDS International Programme Office by email () no later than Wednesday, 5 May 2021.
