IN033: Publishing and managing data: the case for Trustworthy Digital 

Session Description: Continuity of science demands that data remain 
useful and meaningful over time. Data created for and used by 
researchers should be managed, curated, and archived to protect the 
initial investment in data collection and to ensure future discovery, 
access, and reuse. Science funders are mandating open data policies that 
call for long-term accessibility and stewardship of data. Publishers are 
realizing the importance of lodging data underlying publications in 
Trustworthy Digital Repositories. Domain and institutional repositories 
play a critical role to address these requirements, however, their 
sustainability raises challenging issues in different areas: 
organizational, technical, financial, legal, etc. Certification 
standards are important to assess the trustworthiness of digital 
repositories and hence the potential for sharing data over a long period 
of time. This session invites papers describing the challenges and 
opportunities for Earth and space science data repositories and 
services, the value and role of certification, and how Publishers are
