    Greetings everyone,
    We hope this email finds you well!
    We are sorry we have to cancel this month’s call (was scheduled on 19th),
    due to our availability this week.
    We are planning to submit a group session proposal to the RDA Plenary 20.
    Here is the proposal in draft
    Please contact any co-chair if you have any suggestions to improve the
    proposal before 25th Oct. (regardless time zone), the submission due date
    is 31 October 2022.
    In our recent monthly calls, we have been conceptualising and gathering
    ideas on ten (a temporary number) things/rules for data
    repositories/catalogues to improve data discoverability. Things/rules may
    include choices of an appropriate (user) study method for a particular data
    search evaluation/exploration goal, ways to support interdisciplinary data
    discovery or team science, practices to connect data search from
    literature, web and repository, etc. The ideal of the plenary session is to
    continue this discussion with more community members and get feedback. If
    you are interested in this discussion or can help to develop and write a
    thing/rule, you can either join our plenary session (if it gets accepted)
    or our monthly call. A reminder will be sent to this mailing list a couple
    of days ahead of each meeting.
    Kind regards,
    Co-chairs: Fotis, Kathleen and Ming
