For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth science data, forming a community dedicated to making Earth science data more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public. The theme of the January meeting is "Opening Doors to Open Science."

All session recordings can be accessed on the ESIP YouTube Channel HERE.

Open Science and Information Quality across ESIP

Open Science is a large and wide-open topic. The concept is generally understood, but the actual practices to make it a reality are still being defined and refined. Indeed, most, if not all, clusters and committees within ESIP are conducting some sort of work that advances open science. The Open Science Cluster (OSC) seeks to better understand all this activity and foster knowledge sharing and lessons learned across ESIP in order to clarify and improve open science practice.

One important area for open science is the sharing of quality information that enables effective and appropriate use of data by different communities in different contexts. The Information Quality Cluster (IQC) has long worked to develop guidelines for the presentation of dataset quality information, primarily for major Earth science data providers. In the spirit of open and inclusive science, the IQC seeks to extend these guidelines to better address the needs of different types of data providers (citizen science data, for example) and different types of data users such as local communities, first responders, and policy makers.

In this session, the OSC and IQC join forces to begin to get a better understanding of open-science activities happening across ESIP, especially in the realm of information quality. We will hear from several other clusters and then engage the community in a discussion on how we can foster further communication across ESIP that improves the characterization of information quality and advances knowledge sharing about open science issues.
