    Session Title: Applying Community-Developed Principles and Guidance to
    Improve Open Science Capabilities of Scientific Data Repositories and
    Service Providers
    Session Description:
    With 2023 being designated as the “year of open science” by the OSTP and
    major federal agencies, the research data community is leveraging this
    opportunity to improve capabilities for enabling diverse and collaborative
    users to discover, access, and use open data products and services. Data
    repositories also utilize community-developed guidance to attain goals for
    enabling open science across disciplines, levels of expertise, and
    cultures. Such guidance comes in many varieties and includes the FAIR,
    CARE, and TRUST Principles, among others. Similarly, standards and
    community guidance on topics like data quality, versioning, persistent
    identifiers, open-source software reusability, documentation,
    interoperability, provenance, preservation, reproducibility,
    tool-development, facilitating data citation, and others also offer options
    for data repositories and service providers to improve capabilities for
    data users to realize and contribute to the societal benefits of open
    science. This session’s presentations discuss how data repositories
    leverage principles and related guidance to enable open science.
