To keep the DataONE community up-to-date and informed on current events in the wider data sharing, management, preservation and open data arenas, we have launched a 'Coffeehouse'. The Coffeehouse is a blog aggregator site pulling in relevant information from across the web and links readers back to the original content. If you have a blog relevant to the DataONE community that you would like to share, please tell us more via this form.
Under the terms of the Executive Order and a new Open Data Policy released today by the Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Office of Management and Budget, all newly generated government data will be required to be made available in open, machine-readable formats, greatly enhancing their accessibility and usefulness, while ensuring privacy and security.
