Council of Data Facilities General Assembly Meeting
The Council of Data Facilities (CDF) is committed to working with relevant agencies, professional associations, initiatives, and other complementary efforts to enable transformational science, innovative education, and informed public policy through increased coordination, collaboration, and innovation in the acquisition, curation, preservation, and dissemination of geoscience data, tools, models, and services. Existing and emerging geoscience data facilities – through the Council – are committed to serving as an effective foundation for EarthCube. The General Assembly meeting is open to the official representatives from all member data facilities, additional member organization personnel as desired by the members, as well as observers. How to

Data Skills & Competencies Requirements for Data Stewards: Views from the ESIP Community & Beyond
At the ESIP Summer 2019, many ESIP community members offered their feedback on the range and importance of skills and competencies for data specialists whose job responsibilities focus upon offering data "advise" (e.g., from data curators) and data "service providers" (e.g., from data librarians). By means of an interactive poster, participants were asked to choose whether a competency was of high, medium, low or no importance from a subset of competencies identified by a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) project. In this session, session leaders will present the results of the ESIP community feedback within the context of the full list of EOSC competencies, and visualized from both a poster synthesis and a research data lifecycle point of view. Session leaders are hoping to have the audience participate by providing feedback and engaging in discussion on the data and views presented. One outcome of this work will be a "Career Compass" to be published by the American Geoscience Institute for students interested in becoming data stewards. How to Prepare for this Session:

COPDESS: Facilitating a Fair Publishing Workflow Ecosystem
COPDESS, the Coalition for Publishing Data in the Earth and Space Sciences (https://copdess.org/), was established in October 2014 as a platform for Earth and Space Science publishers and data repositories to jointly define, implement, and promote common policies and procedures for the publication and citation of data and other research results (e.g., samples, software, etc.) across Earth Science journals. In late 2018, COPDESS became a cluster of ESIP to give the initiative the needed sustainability to support a long-term FAIR publishing workflow ecosystem and be a springboard to pursue future enhancements of it.

In 2017, with funding from the Arnold Foundation, the ‘Enabling FAIR Data Project’ (https://copdess.org/enabling-fair-data-project/) moved mountains towards implementing the policies and standards that connect researchers, publishers, and data repositories in their desire to accelerate scientific discovery through open and FAIR data. Implementation of the new FAIR policies has advanced rapidly across Earth, Space, and Environmental journals, but supporting infrastructure, guidelines, and training for researchers, publishers, and data repositories has yet to catch up. The primary challenges are:
  • Repositories struggle to keep up with the demands of researchers, who want to be able to instantly deposit data and obtain a DOI, without considering the data quality/data ingest requirements and review procedures of individual repositories - producing a situation where data publication is inconsistent in quality and content.
  • Many publishers who have signed the Commitment Statement for FAIR Data (https://copdess.org/enabling-fair-data-project/commitment-statement-in-the-earth-space-and-environmental-sciences/) agree with it at a high, conceptual level. However, many journal editors and reviewers lack clarity on how to validate that datasets, which underpin scholarly publications, conform with the Commitment Statement.
  • Researchers experience confusion, and in some cases barriers to publication of their papers whilst they try and meet the requirements of the commitment statement. Clarity of requirements, timelines, and criteria for selecting repositories are needed to minimize the barriers to the joint publication of papers and associated data.

Funders have a role to play, in that they need to allow for time and resources required to curate data and ensure compliance, particularly WRT to the assignment of valid DOIs. Funders can also begin to reward those researchers who do take the effort to properly manage and make their data available, in a similar way to how they reward scholarly publications and citation of those publications.

The goal of this session is to start a conversation on developing an integrated publishing workflow ecosystem the seamlessly integrates researchers, repositories, publishers and funders. Perspectives from all viewpoints will be presented.

Developing, Using and Testing Tools to Assess Learning Resources from two Perspectives: the Teacher and the Learner
Session leaders will describe tools being developed to assess the learning resources in the ESIP"s Data Management Training Clearinghouse (DMTC) from the perspectives of both instructors and students. The feedback collected through these tools will aid in identifying and choosing resources appropriate for their needs. First efforts have been focused on using DataONE's EEVA tool to identify and adapt questions. Feedback will be requested from participants to help guide the content, look and feel of the tool. How to Prepare for this Session: Visiting ESIP's Data Management Training Clearinghouse (https://dmtclearinghouse.esipfed.org) would be helpful but not required for productive participation in the session.
