- Webinar Registration Open: Tools and Strategies for Archiving Data June 12, 2017 - Sponsored by the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS), the Arctic Data Center are presenting a 1 hr webinar in which we will give a brief overview of the the Arctic Data Center; the history, infrastructure, and partnerships that support long-term preservation of data and metadata. We will highlight the many features and services offered by the Arctic Data Center before stepping through some best practices for working with data and guidance on how to archive data to with the Arctic Data Center. The NSF Arctic Data Center plays a critical support role in archiving and curating the data and software generated by Arctic ... Read more »
- Call for Applications: Data Science Training for Arctic Research May 22, 2017 - We are currently soliciting applications for a 2-day Data Science Training workshop, to be held in Santa Barbara, CA July 31st – August 1st. This workshop will provide researchers with an overview of best data management practices, data science tools and concrete steps and methods for more easily documenting and uploading their data to the Arctic Data Center. Applications are solicited from researchers within the Arctic research community. Participants will be selected on the basis of their current research or work activities; their previous experience with open science practices, data management techniques and analysis methods; and their current or former opportunities to access ...

Features of the NSF Arctic Data Center
Fast, online data set submission down to the detail you need
Upload software, scientific analysis code, and data in any format.
View usage statistics of your data and a summary of your contributions
Login with your ORCID account
Mint DOIs for your data sets to use in publications and across the web
Once data have been submitted to the Arctic Data Center, our metadata staff will review and provide suggestions for improvement, and, once everything is set, we will make the data publicly accessible and publish it with a DOI. This will allow you and other researchers to cite the data set directly in NSF reports, publications, and other venues. The DOI is registered with DataCite using the EZID service, and will be discoverable through multiple data citation networks, including DataONE and others.
Fast, easy discovery with spatial tools
Where is the ACADIS Gateway?
As of March 28, 2016, the NSF Arctic Data Center will serve as the current repository for NSF-funded Arctic data. The ACADIS Gateway is no longer accepting data submissions. All data and metadata in the ACADIS system have been transferred to the NSF Arctic Data Center system. There is no need for you to resubmit existing data.
Former ACADIS Gateway Users
If you are a current account holder in ACADIS and have an ORCID identifier, or have just created one, you will be able to sign in to the NSF Arctic Data Center and submit data.
Steps to access your data:
1. Create an ORCID identifier (or retrieve your existing ORCID identifier if you already have one)
2. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your ACADIS account name and your ORCID identifier.
3. We’ll do the rest. We will connect the two accounts so that all your data are available to you through the ORCID sign in process. We hope to make this process as fast as possible.
ORCID identifiers enable researchers to cross link across different types of research products (data, publications etc.) to create unique profiles showcasing their work. Data are valuable research products and we believe researchers should get credit for publication of data sets. By integrating ORCIDs with the NSF Arctic Data Center, researchers will be more able to showcase their work and receive credit.
