DataONE Member Nodes are the key to getting research data available through DataONE and are the site where data is gathered, managed, and stored. As part of the DataONE federation, Member Nodes expose all or portions of their data products by implementing a common set of service interfaces. Member Nodes are typically existing data repositories within the earth science domain and often already fill an important role in their respective communities supporting data management, curation, discovery, and access functions. These preservation-oriented repositories invest time and resources to join DataONE’s persistent, reliable, and sustainable cyberinfrastructure with the common goal to unite environment-based research through its distributed architecture. The benefits of which can lead to better visibility and dissemination of their data, long-term data management, and broader community engagement.
