2019 Data Science Trainings for Arctic Research
The Arctic Data Center is hosting a data science training funded by the National Science Foundation from October 7-11, 2019. This 5-day training provides Arctic researchers with an overview of best data management practices, data science tools, reproducible data analysis in R and Github, and concrete steps and methods for more easily documenting and uploading their data to the Arctic Data Center.
- Call for Abstracts: Third Polar Data Forum (PDF III) July 9, 2019 - The Third Polar Data Forum (PDF III) will be hosted by the Finnish Meteorological Institute at thair Dynamicum campus in Helsinki from November 18th to 22nd, 2019. PDF III will be a two day conference style meeting in support of information exchange, with the remainder of the week using a “hackathon” approach that will build on the development work done in previous meetings. More information is available on the conference website: https://polar-data-forum.org/ Posters and presentations will be accepted on a wide variety of data, information and knowledge related issues. Abstracts will be reviewed primarily for their relevance or connection to the polar regions ... Read more »
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.
