The explosion of geophysical data sets and the movement towards open access data in recent years have made data citation, attribution, and licensing of critical importance. Differing policies between data archives, data providers, and publishers have generated uncertainty and confusion. The upcoming merger between IRIS and UNAVCO to create the EarthScope Consortium provides an excellent opportunity to have a broad community discussion on these issues. To that end, a virtual workshop on geophysical data citation, attribution, and licensing will be held over three days (October 17, 19, and 21) this fall. All data users, data providers, journal editors, and other stakeholders interested in these issues are welcome to attend.
The objectives for the workshop include:
- Identify approaches for consistent data citation and attribution within the geophysical/geoscience communities in a way that works with most publishers and scientific organizations.
- Discuss data set licensing options and implications.
Additional details, including how to register, will be available soon on the meeting website.
We hope to see you in October,
The Workshop Organizing Committee:
