Description:

The OceanBestPracticesSystem Repository (OBPS-R) is the hub of the Ocean Best Practices System (OBPS) which comprises: repository archive; sophisticated but user-friendly web interface; advanced technology including text mining and semantic tagging; peer-reviewed journal linked to the repository; a training component supported by the OceanTeacher Global Academy and a community forum. The OBPS-R is an open access, permanent, digital repository of community best practices in ocean-related sciences and applications maintained by the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) of the UNESCO-IOC as an IOC (IODE, GOOS) coordinated activity. OBPS-R offers an array of services in discovery, access and training of Best Practices working with the technical communities that originate and use best practices. It?s home organization, IODE, has collaborative relations with many of the prominent institutes, networks and organizations that are the source of ocean data and information. OBPS-R is a trusted repository for the global ocean research and observing community to publish their best practice documents by depositing them into OBPS-R. Dissemination is extended by the repository being indexed by all the major search engines and harvested by such services as Google Scholar, Scopus, OpenAIRE, ASFA etc. To support such indexing, OBPS-R provides DOIs for submitted best practices.
