Marine and Coastal Hub data management
The Hub follows a distributed model for data publishing. Data may be published through the University of Tasmania (using the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, IMAS, data repository), the eAtlas data repository (managed by the Australian Institute of Marine Science), or other endorsed Hub partner or discipline-specific repositories.
All Hub datasets are harvested to the Australian Ocean Data Network (AODN) where they are discoverable and accessible in a single centrally aggregated location.
IMAS and eAtlas provide tools and workflows to support publication of Hub data, and are available as data repositories for all NESP Hub researchers.
The Hub facilitates projects to ensure they follow the FAIR principles to Open Data of being findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable, with all data made available under licences that allow reuse. When working with Indigenous data, the Global Indigenous Data Alliance’s CARE principles for collective benefit, authority to control, responsibility and ethics, are complementarily applied.
The Marine and Coastal Hub, through its origins in the previous NESP Marine Biodiversity and Tropical Water Quality Hubs, brings a broad and knowledgeable data management team to establish and build on existing principles, strategies, guidelines and infrastructure for both the Hub and as a key participant in the broader marine science community.
