Alignment of Polar Data Policies

Together with colleagues from Arctic Data Committee, Southern Ocean Observing System and Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management representatives from the Arctic SDI has participated in the development of the the document “Alignment of Polar Data Policies“.

The document examines the state and recent developments of global and important regional data policies, as well as technological and institutional developments that should or might be considered when forming new polar data policies.

The document identifies a number of data management principles that can be regarded as essential to the management of polar research
data and can be incorporated in all polar data policies in such a way that they are aligned with each other and with overarching global and regional data policies.
