Abstract:Recognizing that most Earth, environmental, and ecological scientists use spreadsheets at some point in the life cycles of their data, the California Digital Library partnered with Microsoft Research Connections and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to create a tool for Microsoft ® Excel that would encourage and enable good data stewardship practices. The resulting DataUp tool facilitates documenting, managing, and archiving tabular scientific data. It comes in two forms, both open-source: an add-in for Excel and a web-based application. Both the add-in and the web application provide users with the ability to (1) Perform a "best practices check" to ensure data are well formatted and organized; (2) Create standardized metadata, or a description of the data, using a wizard-style template; (3) Retrieve a unique identifier for their dataset from their data repository, and (4) Post their datasets and associated metadata to the repository.
