Presentation title: EPOS-NL: How to publish earth science data in the Netherlands

When: 9 April 11:00-11:15

Session: Methods and instrumentation

Presenters: Richard Wessels, Lora Armstrong, Vincent Brunst, Connie Clare, and Otto Lange

Publishing research data in a Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) manner is becoming increasingly valued, and often required by funders and publishers. It also enables the reuse and citation of data, thereby increasing the impact of research. Under EPOS-NL, TU Delft and Utrecht University are collaborating to improve the FAIRness of earth science research data.

To make data more FAIR, it can be sustainably published in data repositories, such as 4TU.ResearchData (TU Delft) or Yoda (Utrecht University). This collaboration evaluates the value of publishing FAIR data using both repositories, focusing on (harmonization of) the publication processes, their advantages and limitations. In addition, it targets the discovery of published data through other platforms, such as data catalogues and search engines to enlarge their findability and re-use.

Researchers interested in publishing and retrieving data using 4TU.ResearchData or Yoda are encouraged to attend.
