For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth science data, thus forming a community dedicated to making Earth science data more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public. The theme of this year’s meeting is "Data for All People: From Generation to Use and Understanding."

This session is a working session of the Physical Samples Curation Cluster. During this session, we will report on related activities in other ESIP Clusters, updates from the relevant external Sample Communities and continue efforts from the Cluster monthly meetings.

To continue efforts from the monthly meetings, we will have focused discussions on the development of author guidelines and recommendations for samples for journals and publishers. Sample citation is a complex topic. While it is challenging, it is also crucial for making samples a part of the data ecosystem. Our aim is to improve the discoverability of samples in the future such that they can be used by all researchers, from sample generation to sample use and understanding.

The Physical Samples Curation Cluster is a forum for the community supporting physical samples in the earth, space, and environmental sciences which includes but is not limited to geological and biological samples. The cluster’s goal is to enhance discoverability, access, and use of sample collections.
