What have we achieved?
We integrate data and publish them in open access repositories so that they may be accessed and reused by other users.
Thanks to our work, the integrated data will be published in institutional repositories of the Observatorio de Cambio Global de Sierra Nevada (Sierra Nevada Global Change Observatory) (Linaria, ClimaNevada), as well as in international repositories recognized by the scientific community (e.g. GBIF, PANGAEA, ACTRiS, GEOBON). In this way, data become a citable resource and we ensure their long-term preservation and access.
Data will be free and open-access, and this will contribute to making science more open (Open Science).
How do our actions benefit us?
We facilitate access to data, develop tools and services and highlight the value of the scientific information generated in Smart EcoMountains.
We guarantee the availability of high-quality scientific information with a view to improving knowledge on mountain ecosystems and on the main global change processes that affect them.
Besides, we offer detailed records through the development of tools and services that help learn more about all the environmental information that exists about Sierra Nevada. This has a great local impact, as the information supports decision-making and is not only used in research, but also in management. In a similar way, highlighting the value of such information provides an international scope to all the scientific activity that is being developed in Sierra Nevada, which is a key aspect for the development of this Topic Centre on Mountains.
