LTER-Europe, the European regional sub-network of the global ILTER (International Long-Term Ecological Research Network) has joined DataONE as a Member Node. LTER-Europe helps to coordinate ILTER activities in Europe and represents European-level interests in ILTER. Over 450 sites holding extremely varied data are part of this network of 21 National LTER-Networks. Some sites have more than 100 years of data.
Enhanced exposure for DataONE Member Nodes provides users with real time information on current data holdings within the DataONE network of repositories.
Released this month, the new ‘Member Node Dashboard’ shows the volume and number of data and metadata files discoverable through the DataONE network, in addition to charting file uploads across time. Additionally, a table of current, upcoming and replication nodes enables users to access individual Member Node statistics pages to explore the data metrics, including information on when newest content was added.
The DMPTool partners are pleased to announce a half-day workshop at the upcoming DataONE Users Group meeting in Frisco, CO July 6th and 7th.
The Digital Curation Centre, in collaboration with DataONE, have released the latest publication in their series of How-to Guides: How to Discover Requirements for Research Data Management Services
Co-authored by DCC’s Angus Whyte and DataONE’s Suzie Allard, the guide provides an overview of the RDM service development context, and details methods used to plan, elicit, analyze, document and prioritize service users’ requirements.
DataONE is pleased to welcome the Gulf of Alaska Data Portal at the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS) to its growing network of data repositories. The Gulf of Alaska Data Portal archives ecological and environmental observations arising from monitoring and field research in the Gulf of Alaska and in particular Prince William Sound and lower Cook Inlet. Many data sets are time series spanning multiple decades that continue through the present.
DataONE further extends the provision of biodiversity informatics, systematics and ecology and evolutionary biology data with the recent addition of the University of Kansas’ Biodiversity Institute (KUBI) Member Node. The KUBI brings its focus on biodiversity education, research, documentation and service to support DataONE’s vision to enable “researchers, educators, and the public to better understand and conserve life on earth and the environment that sustains it”.
DataONE gains a new partner as the USA National Phenology Network (USA-NPN) becomes a Member Node. The USA National Phenology Network serves science and society by promoting broad understanding of plant and animal phenology and its relationship with environmental change. The USA-NPN will deliver phenology data from its Nature’s Notebook program collected at 2,000 sites across the United States from 2009 through 2012, through the DataONE infrastructure.
