Managing NOAA's Research and Development Assets
Co-Chairs: Gary Matlock / Kristen Schepel
Location: Emerald 1
.
This session solicits presentations and topics related to the use of publication and project management data and information to track NOAA’s research outputs including reach and impact. Presenters will focus on the NOAA Institutional Repository, NOAA’s Research & Development Database, and NOAA’s Earth Observation Requirements Evaluation System illustrating how the systems function, how to submit/input data, and how they are used to report on NOAA’s research activities. Additionally, presenters will show how these systems are coming together to share data and create linkages between projects and final outcomes such as publications and NOAA assets (observation platforms) and how these efforts can help reduce redundant work and make reporting easier. Additional presentations about using these systems, working with staff to input materials, querying and reporting impacts from these and other databases are also welcomed for this session.
