    • Open Source Software Policy Options for NASA Earth and Space Sciences 

      Parsons, Mark; Gentemann, Chelle L. (National Academies Press, 2018)
      Modern science is ever more driven by computations and simulations. In particular, the state of the art in space and Earth science often arises from complex simulations of climate, space weather, and astronomical phenomena. ...
    • Power and Persistent Identifiers 

      Parsons, Mark; Fox, Peter (2018-11-06)
      Persistent identifiers are critical components of modern and evolving data infrastructure. Like much of the mechanics of civilization, PIDs are based on trusted registries. The operation of these registries can have ...
    • Practical Advice to Data Centers to Make Data more FAIR 

      Bricher, P. R.; Duerr, Ruth; Parsons, Mark; LeDrew, Ellsworth; Collins, Julia; Vandenberghe, Thomas; Scory, Serge; Godøy, Øystein; Jones, Matthew B.; Alix, Gabrielle (Data Science Journal, 2018)
      The polar research community has a long history of leadership in promoting open and collaborative data sharing. The first International Polar Year in 1882 made the first call for harmonious meteorological observations. The ...
    • RDA Recommendation on PID Kernel Information 

      Weigel, T. A.; Plale, B. A.; Parsons, Mark; Zhou, G. A.; Luo, Y. A.; Schwardmann, U. A.; Quick, R. A.; Hellström, M. A.; Kurakawa, K. (Research Data Alliance, 2019)
      Global middleware infrastructure is insufficient for robust data identification, discovery, and use. While infrastructure is emerging within sub-ecosystems such as the DOI ecosystem of services purposed for data and ...
    • The Census of Deep Life: Metadata Then and Now 

      Rogers, K.L.; Thomson, Brenda; Colwell, F.; Eleish, Ahmed; Fontaine, Kathy; Fox, Peter; Gaidos, E.; Hoarfrost, A.; Huang, F.; Ladau, J.; Magnabosco, C.; Parsons, Mark; Prabhu, Anirudh; Ruff, S.E.; Twing, K. (AGU, 2018-01-01)
    • The FAIR data imperative: Working together to connect data and related publications 

      Stall, S.; Parsons, Mark; et al. (Nature, 2018-01-01)
      Scientific data are burgeoning — thousands of petabytes were collected in 2018 alone. But these data are not being used widely enough to realize their potential. Most researchers come up against obstacles when they try to ...
    • Visual Strategies for Heterogeneous Data: Network Analyses in Earth and Space Sciences 

      Fox, Peter; Prabhu, Anirudh; Parsons, Mark (EGU, 2018)
      Recent successes in the application of complex network theory (including multi-partite) and algorithms to how minerals, fossils and proteins evolve over billions of years, have raised expectations that more general ...
