Notes[edit | edit source]

Possible Action Items Mark Parsons and Ruth Duerr work on news release drafts for Data Citation and Data Preservation Guidelines nad BEst Practices Documents

Key Topics

  • Newly Created Data Preservation Committee, Curt is the new chair of the committee
    • Charged with Data Citation and Data Stewardship documents maintainace
  • Ruth’s Identifiers paper publish in Earth Science Informatics

Other/Notes

ESIP Assembly voted to create the Data Stewardship Committee

ESIP Assembly charged the new committee with maintaining the Data Stewardship and Data Citation Documents.

  • There is a need to publicize, suggested on ESIP Commons.
  • The guidelines aren’t mandates, they can be adopted or used piecemeal
  • Updating the documents is a source of uncertainty
    • Take major revisions to full Assembly not just committee
    • How often to modify?-Suggested an annual review statement in doc
  • Outreach for making documents known.
  • Publicize documnets through members own networks
    • Press release and/or EOS-like article

PCCS needs to be made implementable, this is through an ontology that is independent of person/project/etc.

  • Things to do: needs concrete, unambiguous vocabulary
