Data packages published by EDI's 2022 Summer Fellows
Garretson, A.C., J. Disney, M.A. Maniscalco, A. Farrell, C. Bailey, J. Matt, U. Arora, M. Armstrong, S. Pratt, N. Dorn, and F. Durand. 2022.
We awarded 14 fellowships for our fifth ecological data management training program (20 June - 19 August 2022). The Fellows received training in ecological data management during a three-day online data publishing workshop and gained hands-on experience through participation in data preparation and publishing with scientists and information managers from specific host research projects, spanning diverse ecosystems across the country, from Maine’s Mount Desert Island to Puerto Rico’s Luquillo Mountains to the Palmyra Atoll in the central Pacific. Our Fellows published a number of data packages.
