  • The Thomas Fire in Santa Barbara December 10, 2017 - The Arctic Data Center, housed at UC Santa Barbara, is being subject to extended municipal power and network outages due to the Thomas Fire. Power issues started last week and are expected to continue into the week of December 10th, 2017. We are operating on backup generator power and backup cooling, which has allowed us to continue all operations without interruption. Our multiple cloud and off-site backups of all data ensure that no data will be lost. Nevertheless, because our main data center is running on backup generator power, there is an increased chance that we will have service outages ... Read more »
  • Data Science Opportunities August 10, 2017 - The Arctic Data Center at NCEAS is looking for enthusiastic people to join our team. We have two positions available, a Training and Outreach Coordinator and Data Science Fellows. Training and Outreach Coordinator Interested in building an open science training program for the Arctic? The Arctic Data Center at NCEAS is looking for the right person to lead our training and outreach activities. Training activities center around techniques and approaches towards open science and data-driven synthesis, including topical foci on research computing, communication, collaboration, and other aspects of data science that support scientific synthesis.

about-doi

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?

acadis-screenshot

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 support@arcticdata.io 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.

Why ORCID?

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.
