The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is seeking public comments on a draft set of desirable characteristics of data repositories used to locate, manage, share, and use data resulting from Federally funded research.
Ag Data Commons has added a Quick Start summary to provide contributors with a brief overview of the data submission process. The diagram serves as an introduction to the full, step-by-step Data Submission Manual. If a dataset DOI is required, it is necessary to save the data files with Ag Data Commons.
Ag Data Commons solicits input on the following roadmap for this fiscal year (starting October 1, 2019). Please share your thoughts or questions at NAL-ADC-Curator@ars.usda.gov.
The National Agricultural Library’s Ag Data Commons has deployed updates to our look, feel, and function. And the BETA tag is gone! Submit or link your data to the Ag Data Commons to meet FAIR data requirements of journals when you submit manuscripts, or public access requirements of funders such as NIFA.
