ESIP as a knowledge and data commons

As a continuation of ESIP's internal conversation about commoning (breakout in Summer of 2016, plenary speaker Winter 2017, workshop Summer 2018) this breakout will discuss how the growing corpus of open Earth science and data—as public goods provided by agencies, or as science objects with open licenses—can be optimized for reuse through stewardship practices that can be called "commoning. " Commoning describes the governance of shared pool resources by a self-governed collective of users, who want to gain the most value from these while guaranteeing the future open availability of these resources. In many ways ESIP has long acted like an Earth data commons, now it is time to understand more fully how to maintain a knowledge and data commons in a world dominated by open competitive marketplaces. The larger picture of commoning in the academy and the need for civic trusts will also be covered.
