Grant Description

Many organizations, government agencies and academic institutions have developed excellent educational resources to inform and train scientists about best practices in data management. It has been our experience that educational resources are often difficult to locate, as they are spread out across numerous websites and scientific domains. In addition, resources are often difficult to evaluate with respect to their effectiveness and their relationship to a specific domain or framework. To address this need, a group of organizations that have experience creating, presenting and distributing data management training resources will collaborate to create a clearinghouse for data management training resources in the Earth sciences. The clearinghouse will provide a searchable and browseable inventory of training resources and will be hosted within the Federation for Earth Science Information Partnersм (ESIPмs) existing Drupal environment at To assist with discoverability and scope definition, training resources will be associated with elements of the USGS Science Data Lifecycle Model. The team will develop a sustainable mechanism for adding and describing new resources through crowdsourcing. An advisory group of interested and committed organizations has been formed to guide and support the project; represented organizations include the Federation of Earth Science Information Partners, DataONE, USGS Core Science Analytics, Synthesis and Libraries, and Knowledge Motifs LLC. The advisory group will continue its work beyond the grant period to sustain the effort.
