ESIP UPDATE: 04.19.21

Happy Monday everyone!

The Virtual Data Help Desk at vEGU21 is in full swing this week! The event, which is being led by ESIP, EGU, and AGU, as well as their partners, connects researchers with informatics experts familiar with their scientific domain to learn about skills and techniques that will help further their research and make their data and software more open and FAIR. Follow the action on Twitter HERE and check out our growing gallery of contributed demos and tutorials at If you see questions or topics you're interested in, jump in where you can to suggest resources or other individuals that might help. It's an all-hands-on-deck event! Thank you and please note: you do not have to be attending the EGU General Assembly to take part in the Data Help Desk.

One of the resources we are proud to feature is “A Graduate Student's Road Map to Data Management Training.” Created by ESIP Community Fellows Ben Roberts-Pierel, Eleanor Davis Pierel, and Yuhan (Douglas) Rao, this resource is a guide to help graduate students wade through the ocean of resources to identify what data management practices they should be considering at different graduate school milestones. We are grateful to the Fellows for developing this resource and to the community members who provided input (at past ESIP Meetings and beyond).

Next ESIP Innovation Webinar: InCubed Programme (4/28 at 11:30 am ET/8:30 am PT)
The next installment in ESIP's webinar series on innovation will feature InCubed, which stands for ‘Investing in Industrial Innovation’ and is a Public Private Partnership co-funding program run by the European Space Agency (ESA) Φ-lab. InCubed focuses on developing innovative and commercially viable products and services that leverage the value of Earth observation imagery and datasets. The programme has a very wide scope and can be used to co-fund anything from building satellites to ground applications and everything between or to develop new EO business models. Join the webinar to hear about the programme and 4 examples of very innovative developments supported by it, including Hyperscout-2, COASTEO, MANTIS, and SAT4FLOOD. Please register for this webinar using this link.

CALL FOR PAPERS: Software Citation, Indexing, and Discoverability (due 7/16)
Software is increasingly essential to research. It can be viewed as both a tool to be recorded (for reproducibility) and cited (for credit) as a part of scholarly research works, as well as an output of research that can be used, reused, and further developed. Making this happen effectively leads to challenges in how it is cited, indexed, and discovered. These include challenges relating to: software metadata; identifiers for software and their relationship to those of other research objects; the role of other stakeholders such as indexes, libraries and registries; fostering adoption; development of related tools; and the role of the FAIR principles in this space. This special issue will focus on recent work addressing these challenges. Learn more here.
