DataONE, PLOS and the California Digital Library are partnered in a project to explore data level metrics (see: https://www.dataone.org/news/plos-cdl-and-dataone-join-forces-build-ince...). As part of this work, CDL is conducting a survey to investigate metrics for datasets. The aim is to learn what metrics of use and impact would be useful to researchers and repositories.
Earth to Data: Making Sense of Environmental Observations
National Science Foundation Awards $15 million to Environmental Science Data Project
As with the proverbial canary carried by miners, birds serve as an indicator of the health of our environment. Many common species have experienced significant population declines within the last 40 years. Suggested causes include habitat loss and climate change, however to fully understand bird distribution relative to the... read more

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... read more
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... read more
