DataONE continues to plan for the long-term future and accessibility of Earth and environmental data and we need your support.
DataONE was seeded and has grown through the support of an NSF DataNet cooperative agreement. As we approach the end of that award, the leadership of DataONE in conjunction with the DataONE Users Group and other stakeholders, are actively developing sustainability options for 2020 and beyond. We are excited about the tremendous opportunities afforded through expanded partnerships with the University of California, University of Tennessee, our member data repositories (i.e. Member Nodes), and other key infrastructure providers. Over the next year we will be exploring transition of DataONE administration to the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis at UCSB. We anticipate announcing additional product developments and services that meet the diverse needs of researchers, data repositories, libraries and universities, and research sponsors, while also promoting long-term availability of these solutions.
Stay tuned for future announcements and opportunities to support DataONE!
