Qualitative data is increasingly being used in socio-environmental systems research and related interdisciplinary efforts to address complex sustainability challenges. There are many scientific, descriptive and material benefits to be gained from sharing and re-using qualitative data, some of which reflect the broader push toward open science, and some of which are unique to qualitative research traditions.
New Mexico First will host a statewide town hall on higher education and workforce development, April 10-11, 2018. Our state is rich in education and career opportunities but also faces challenges. New Mexico First is actively working to overcome those challenges by researching barriers to progress and convening a statewide deliberation on solutions. Registration is now open!

Data management plans (DMPs) are becoming commonplace across the globe as a result of funders requiring them with grant proposals, but they are not being employed in ways that truly support the research enterprise. The current manifestation of a DMP—a static document often created before a project begins—only contributes to the perception that they are a useless administrative exercise. Conversations about the need for machine-actionable DMPs (also referenced as “active,” “dynamic,” or “machine-readable” DMPs) have been brewing for a few years.
The NM EPSCoR Mentoring Award is designed to recognize two NM EPSCoR participants who not only build relationships with students and support their academic, research, and career endeavors, but also work to create inclusive environments for our diverse students. NM EPSCoR is seeking nominations for one NM EPSCoR faculty or staff member and one NM EPSCoR graduate student who have the following characteristics:
The DataONE Users Group (DUG) is the worldwide community of Earth observation data authors, users, and diverse stakeholders that makeup the DataONE partnership communities. The primary function of the DUG is to represent the needs and interests of these communities in the activities of DataONE. In particular, the DUG provides guidance that facilitates DataONE in achieving its vision and mission.
On Saturday, February 10, from 10 am to 3 pm, the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will welcome families and Scouts for a day of engineering fun! Visitors will experience the finest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) while enjoying ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, crafting video game controllers, making spin art with circuits and discovering their human conductivity with a Van de Graaf generator, just to name a few!
The Environmental Data Initiative (EDI) was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to accelerate curation, archiving, and publishing of environmental data. EDI provides a secure data repository and data curation support for ecological research projects with emphasis on NSF funded programs including Long Term Research in Environmental Biology (LTREB), Organization for Biological Field Stations (OBFS), Macrosystems Biology (MSB), and Long Term Ecological Research (LTER).
