As a part of the Enabling FAIR Data project led by the American Geophysical Union, the Publishers in the Earth and Space Sciences Targeted Adoption Group developed a set of author guidelines to establish common expectations for researchers across all journals concerning data that support a publication to be adopted by all Earth, space and science journals. These guidelines were developed by individuals representing the following publishers: the American Geophysical Union, Wiley, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Nature, Science/AAAS, Elsevier, American Meteorological Society, PLOS and organizations including NCAR and DataCite.


In version 2 of the Author Guidelines, only the text describing the guidelines and implementation guidance for publishers has been updated. No change to the guidelines from version 1 to 2.
