[MGI31-11] Recent activity of data publication and data citation in the international community of geomagnetism
In the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), scientists who are working for data centers or observatories started discussion about DOI-minting to their data and a task force was formed in August 2013. In the latest IAGA assembly that was held at Cape Town in August 2017, the task force reported about "Present Status of DOI-minting to Geomagnetic Data/Indices" that is available from https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/IAGA/vdat/. The report found that there are different types of activities of DOI-minting in individual data centers or observatories. In the field of geophysics including geomagnetism, interests to the DOI-minting are rapidly growing. At the next International Union Geodesy and Geophysics General Assemblies that will be held in Montreal, Canada, in July 2019, a joint session entitled “Geoscience data licensing, producing, publication and citation” is planned. This session solicits contributions presenting actual practices and future plans of data licensing, producing, publication, and citation of scientific data, and possible related topics. The international effort will be continued for DOI-minting to scientific data in geophysics.
