Abstract

This document is intended as a general guidance for creating and maintaining data collections in ICES – although a number of the general principles can be applied anywhere. It will particularly be a useful resource for expert groups that seek to establish new data collections and systems within ICES, and aims to act as a guide for considerations and work that should be worked out by the contributors ahead of creating formal data calls or building systems to host the data.
