  "abstract": "<p>Since 2016, ATLAS has published a total of 612 research outputs, and an additional 96 are currently in<br>\npreparation. They consist of peer\u2010reviewed scientific articles (15%), data sets (16%), data products<br>\nsuch as georeferenced maps (29%), and various &ldquo;other&rdquo; outputs (40%) that include project<br>\ndeliverables, cruise reports, presentations and posters (Figure 1). The latter are available at Zenodo1,<br>\nwhereas scientific articles were published in peer\u2010reviewed journals. A csv file listing of the current<br>\npeer\u2010reviewed articles is attached to the present report. The proportion of research outputs belonging<br>\nto these four types is consistent with the research life cycle of a scientific consortium, where ideas are<br>\ncommunicated and developed among peers through presentations and progress reports, leading to a<br>\nrelatively smaller number of articles that contribute to the wider scientific community. Also consistent<br>\nwith the life cycle of scientific knowledge, data sets and data products were published towards the<br>\nend of the project, leading to data re\u2010use and increased scientific impact beyond the life\u2010time of the<br>\nproject. Together, data sets and products dominate the overall number of research outputs (45%).&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Data sets \u2010 ATLAS published a total of 106 data sets since 2016, and an additional 10 are currently in<br>\npreparation. They were deposited in trusted archives and are currently available either in open access<br>\n(69%), restricted access (16%) while under review, or under embargo (7%) for a period of 1\u20102 years<br>\n(Figure 2). In the present report, we characterised data sets according to their data type, main research<br>\ntopic, parameters, methods, geographic region and access mode. Table 1 provides an overview of the<br>\ndifferent data types and research topics addressed by ATLAS data sets. Observations relevant for the<br>\nstudy of biodiversity, biogeography, palaeoceanography and environmental conditions clearly<br>\ndominate the portfolio, followed by observations related to human activity. A number of modelling&nbsp;data sets were also published, particularly with regards to environmental conditions and paleoceanography. Data sets also<br>\nprovide expert assessments about habitat conservation, as well as experimental work<br>\non biological processes. Software code used to generate some data sets are also<br>\nincluded in this overview. The complete inventory of ATLAS data sets is provided in Section 2, including the publication year,<br>\nthe name of the data repository and the URL pointing to each data set. The inventory is also available in a csv file<br>\nattached to the present report.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Data products \u2010 ATLAS published a total of 177 data products since 2016, and an additional 30 are<br>\ncurrently in preparation. They are available in open access on the ATLAS GeoNode2. In the present<br>\nreport, we characterised data products according to their data type, main research topic, parameters,<br>\nmethods, geographic region and format. Table 2 provides an overview of the different data types,<br>\nresearch topics and parameter types addressed by ATLAS data products. The portfolio is dominated<br>\nby dynamic maps (raster of vector) of modelled habitat suitability at basin\u2010scale, and by static maps<br>\n(images) of modelled deep\u2010sea benthic species larval dispersion and habitat connectivity at the scale<br>\nof ATLAS case studies. Environmental maps resulting from physical, biogeochemical and<br>\ngeomorphological models also predominate. A number of maps based on geomorphological<br>\nobservations and expert assessments of conservation status and human activity are also available in<br>\nvarious formats. The complete inventory of ATLAS data products is provided in Section 3, including<br>\nthe publication year, the access mode, the URL of each data products on the ATLAS GeoNode, and<br>\nwhere applicable the URL pointing to the archive where the data product was published. The inventory<br>\nis also available in a csv file attached to the present report.&nbsp;</p>",
