The project deliverables and materials developed as part of the Enabling FAIR Data Project.
The Laura and John Arnold Foundation awarded a grant to a coalition of groups representing the international Earth and space science community, convened by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), to develop standards that will connect researchers, publishers, and data repositories in the Earth, space, and environmental sciences to enable FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) data on a large scale. This project will accelerate scientific discovery and enhance the integrity, transparency, and reproducibility of this data.
This effort builds on the work of The Coalition on Publishing Data in the Earth and Space Sciences (COPDESS.org), Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), Research Data Alliance (RDA), the scientific journals, and domain repositories to ensure that well documented data, preserved in a repository with community agreed-upon metadata, and supporting persistent identifiers becomes part of the expected research products submitted in support of each publication. This is a community-driven project that will be managed by both ESIP and RDA after the grant period concludes.

Documents were developed by each of the targeted adoption groups (TAG), reviewed by TAG members, project Steering Committee, and the larger project stakeholder community during interactive review cycles.
Presentation materials were developed from the project content and documents.
