ESIP UPDATE: 10.30.17

Good morning ESIP – Kick off your Monday morning with a great interview about community-driven science featuring the EarthArXiv founders Chris Jackson, Tom Narock and Bruce Caron. The interview talks about how EarthArxiv has been a great example of an open, community-led initiative that isn't controlled by any one entity. Read the full article here.

In other news, its great to see that the JPSS satellite is launching soon, a collaborative program between two of ESIP's supporting agencies, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). #inter-agency #polar-orbiting #non-geosynchronous.

Annie B. and the ESIP staff

P.S. Keep up on all the action on Slack! If you are not already on the ESIP Slack team: here is your INVITATION.  If you are on Slack, are you using the Slack App? It's a much better GUI. Grab it HERE

Survey of ESIP Partner Education Programs & Projects
ESIP Education has a 3 question survey we would like you to complete so that we can collect the high-level web pages of the education programs & projects of ESIP partners, members, and those who participate in ESIP activities. 

The goal  of this survey is to provide better visibility of education and outreach activities that our ESIP community offers.  Based on the information provided in the survey, ESIP will post a list of these education programs / projects. Thank you in advance for your time!


Invite to Exploration of Coding “book-club”
ESIP Education Committee is starting a book club-style exploration of coding. The purpose is to explore the hype behind Hour of Code and other coding projects (Girls who code, etc) to find something we might harness as content for ESIP education workshops.

Every other week, following our Out2Lunch presentations, we'll spend ~45 minutes discussing what we've learned from the week's assignment. Our first session will be this Wednesday, Nov 1, immediately following the Out2Lunch presentation. We'll continue meeting for as long (or short) as it seems useful.

Our first assignment for discussion on Nov. 1 (1/2 hour + optional activities) http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/ESIP_Exploration_of_Coding

Center for Open Science and EarthArXiv Launch Branded Preprint Service
The Center for Open Science (COS) and EarthArXiv have launched a new preprint service for the earth sciences, sources for both organizations announced today. The new service, called EarthArXiv, provides free, open access, open source archives for the earth sciences.

EarthArXiv is the fifteenth community preprint service built on COS’s flagship platform, the Open Science Framework, which helps researchers design and manage their project workflow, data storage, DOIs, and collaboration. COS has leveraged that platform to help research communities in many disciplines discover new research as it happens and to receive quick feedback on their own research prior to publication.

AGU Help Desk
Now that AGU abstracts have been assigned to sessions (thanks, Lesley Wyborn & Program Committee!), it's time to think about the AGU Data Fair!

New this year and inspired by Ruth Duerr, ESSI President, we are adding a Data Help Desk to the Data Fair activities.The Data Help Desk will have three sections 1) Data Reference Desk  (where volunteers can answer data questions) 2) Data Management Workshops (where volunteers will give data-centric workshops) and 3) Tool and Platform Demos (where volunteers can provide a tool/service demonstration).

We are looking for volunteers to sign-up for each of the Help Desk sections for hour long shifts. Sign-up is here: https://goo.gl/forms/Yao672NXobgITyax2 

Ignite! at AGU
NASA’s Applied Sciences Program – in partnership with AGU’s Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI) group and the ESIP Federation – is thrilled to co-sponsor IgniteAGU 2017 at the upcoming Fall AGU meeting. Ignite (www.igniteshow.com), a concept created by O’Reilly Media, provides presenters a strict presentation format – five minutes and 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds – to make their point. Enlighten us, but make it quick!

DataONE Webinar Series: Provenance enabled Reproducibility
Reproducible research is enabled, in part, by provenance metadata that describes the lineage and processing history of data and knowledge artifacts. Provenance plays an important role in many scientific applications and use cases. Yet this information is often not tracked as thoroughly and systematically as science metadata. DataONE has been working on tools to display provenance information and to support recording of provenance metadata through programming languages such as R and Matlab and through an intuitive, user friendly, web-based UI.
