    Our group session, “Recommendations for data repositories to improve data discoverability”, is scheduled in the Breakout 6 (10-11:30 UTC | 11:00-12:30 Sweden, Thursday 23 March 2023), with the objectives: to update the group progress, and to continue our monthly discussion on conceptualising and writing on draft: Ten simple rules for data repositories/catalogues to improve data discoverability.

    data repositories/catalogues to improve data discoverability
    Participants contributed valuable ideas and suggestions to shape and
    advance this work.”*
    *We gathered many ideas and contents to advance the work on ten rules. We
    will focus our efforts for the next 6 (monthly) calls, aiming to have a
    ready version for the next plenary #21 in October. *
    *The group has a regular monthly call on the third Wednesday of each month,
    starting 12pm UTC, for an hour. The next one is the19th April. *
