A meeting was convened by the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR), the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) and the Marine Biological Laboratory/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Library (MBLWHOI Library) on 2 April 2010 to advance the two use cases that had been developed over the past two years by the SCOR/IODE activity on data publication. Increased access to data is becoming increasingly important to stimulate data reuse and to get data into the public domain, where it can contribute to discussions of important science issues, including the ocean’s role in climate change and the global carbon cycle, marine biodiversity, fisheries, harmful algal blooms, and others. The meeting noted progress in the two use cases, on publishing data related to traditional journal articles and data held by data centres, and made plans for future cooperation between data centres and libraries.
