ESIP News and Events

Kudoboard for Jeff DLB

Last week, we shared the sad news of the passing of a long-time ESIP friend, Jeff de La Beaujardiere, or Jeff DLB as he was fondly known.

Please take a moment and read, write, or share the Kudoboard tributes in his honor.

Four Steps to Publish Open Earth Science Samples

The ESIP Physical Samples Cluster has created a flyer with open science guidelines to help make material samples and sample data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR).

Check out “4 Steps to Publish Open Earth Science Samples” on the ESIP figshare. 

Volunteer at the Open Science and Data Help Desk

Join us at the AGU Fall Meeting! We are co-hosting the Open Science and Data Help Desk at the Open Science Pavilion in the Exhibit Hall.

Sign up as a volunteer by this Thursday (Nov 30): Offer in-person guidance at the booth, present a demo or tool, or craft a resource to share in the virtual gallery. 

Share Your Open Science “Stumbles” 

We learn as much — if not more — from mistakes as we do from successes. Fill out this form and share challenges or missteps in implementing open science. The stories you share will inform a session at the Open Science and Data Help Desk on Wednesday, Dec 13 from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

See you at Ignite@AGU

Five minutes. 20 slides. Exactly. Our Ignite@AGU speakers take on the challenge of “less is more” to share their work, stories, and ideas.

We will be at the Great American Music Hall on Wednesday, Dec 13 at 6 PM during the AGU Fall Meeting. The talks will be recorded, but this is a venue and lineup you don't want to miss. No RSVP needed this year.
