This training course seeks to bring together marine researchers, data/document managers and marine data librarians to develop an agreed approach to sound data management for all research activities conducted as part of the second International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE-2). The second International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE-2) is a major new program of the IOC in partnership with the Indian Ocean Global Ocean Observing System (IOGOOS) Regional Alliance and the Scientific Committee for Oceanographic Research (SCOR). Over the next 5 years, a large number of IIOE-2 related research activities will collect new data on a range of physical, biogeochemical, biological and coupled climatic characteristics of the Indian Ocean.  Basic scientific research requires sound data management practices and one of the overarching objectives of IIOE-2 will be to support the collection and curation of all data to encourage data sharing using internationally agreed rules of data exchange, and to facilitate data discovery and use in the long term.


This course will cover the planning, creating, storing, organizing, accessing, sharing, describing, publishing and curating of data in the context of IIOE-2 and its data and information management objectives. The course content has broad applicability in the field of research data management in general.
