Supporting Preservation and Reuse of Arctic Social Science Data

Table of Contents

Synopsis

The Arctic Data Center, the primary data and software repository for the Arctic section of the NSF Office of Polar Programs, is committed to supporting the preservation and appropriate reuse of the results of NSF-funded Arctic social scientific research. There are known challenges archiving and preserving social scientific data, and in an effort to engage more fully with the social scientific community, we hosted a workshop focused on supporting Arctic social scientific data co-led with the assistance of social scientists active in Arctic research. The purpose of the proposed workshop was to discuss a central question: 

How can the Arctic Data Center best support researchers from diverse social scientific disciplines in preserving and archiving their data in accordance with the requirements and policies of the National Science Foundation?

The desired outcomes of this discussion based workshop were to 1) reinforce partnership and communication with the Arctic social scientific research community; 2) enhance understanding of how the Arctic Data Center can support the needs of the social scientific community while upholding the requirements of the NSF; and 3) outline further steps for collaboration and training between the Arctic Data Center and the social scientific community. 

Pre-work for the workshop included reading the following:

Peter Pulsifer‘s research addresses questions on the use of geographic information with a focus on supporting interoperability. Data and information sharing is critical to integrating and linking many different kinds of knowledge and supporting interdisciplinary research. Semantic interoperability, the ability to effectively share meaning across knowledge systems, is at the core of his research. These research themes are highly relevant to his focus on community-based research and consideration of the links between Western scientific and Indigenous Knowledge. Since 2006, his work has focused on working with and addressing priority issues of Inuit and other Indigenous Peoples of the Arctic, including extensive experience working directly with Indigenous communities in a co-production model for the establishment of community-based expertise, capacity, and information infrastructure.

 
 

Marc Stieglitz is with Office of Polar Programs’ (OPP) Arctic Science Section’s Arctic Natural Sciences’ (ANS) team of program officers. Prior to joining NSF, Stieglitz was an associate professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech. He has been active in Arctic research since the early 1990s. His research interests are at the interface of the fields of hydrology, ecology, and biogeochemistry. He also brings expertise in modeling, remote sensing, and cyberinfrastructure to the position. Stieglitz previously served in a temporary position in ANS from 2015-2018. He also served as program officer in the Arctic System Science program and played a critical role in linking the section and OPP’s Arctic community to the programs in NSF’s Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure and EarthCube.

 
 

Colleen Strawhacker is the Program Director for the Arctic System Science and the Arctic Social Sciences Programs in the Office of Polar Programs at the National Science Foundation. She is currently on leave as a Research Scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado Boulder and joined the ELOKA team in 2013. She is trained as an anthropological archaeologist, and her research interests focus on climate-driven challenges to food security in the prehispanic US Southwest and Arctic with particular interest in information and data sovereignty issues for Indigenous communities. She has partnered closely with Indigenous communities in her research.

 
 

Andrew Stuhl’s teaching and writing interests sit at the crossroads of environmental history, history of science, and environmental studies. He is drawn to the ways ideas of nature have mediated the human relationship with the environment over time. Most recently, he has explored this theme in the Arctic region, where scientific knowledge about people and the environment has been entangled with the colonization of the far north over the last 150 years. Because both environmental problem-solving and scholarship in the environmental humanities require collaboration, he is committed to interdisciplinarity and community engagement.

 
 

Nic Weber is an Assistant Professor at the Information School at the University of Washington. His research interests are data and software curation, civic technology, and science and technology studies.
