The Earth and Space Science Education Commentaries on ICON (integrated, coordinated, open, networked) processes and FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) principles seek evidence and support for key points.

In this effort, all parts of the international Earth and Space Sciences community have been invited to reflect on using ICON processes and FAIR principles to advance their field. A collection of commentaries reflecting on past work and future opportunities will be published and freely available in the AGU open-access journal, Earth and Space. The development process has been underway since October of this year and will continue into December, and community members are encouraged to join, following along with the discussion or contributing in different asynchronous and synchronous opportunities.

Three commentary teams have now posted a synthesis of community generated final key points on opportunities and barriers to collaboration in geoscience education. Now, teams seek additional supporting evidence and ideas to strengthen these points. Please view the key points made in the commentaries of interest and contribute supporting examples, references, and websites.  You may also provide other feedback on the commentary. Evidence and suggestions will be gathered until November 15th, 2021.

Follow the links below to read the key points and submit evidence and ideas using linked feedback forms on each page.
