HydroShare is a domain specific data and model repository operated by the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science Inc. (CUAHSI) to advance hydrologic science by enabling individual researchers to more easily share products resulting from their research. The community platform supports, not just the scientific publication summarizing a study, but also the data, models and workflow scripts used to create the scientific publication and reproduce the results therein. HydroShare accepts data from anybody, and supports Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) principles. HydroShare is comprised of two sets of functionality: (1) a repository for users to share and publish data and models, collectively referred to as resources, in a variety of formats, and (2) tools (web apps) that can act on content in HydroShare and support web based access to compute capability. Together these serve as a platform for collaboration and computation that integrates data storage, organization, discovery, and analysis through web applications (web apps) and that allows researchers to employ services beyond the desktop to make data storage and manipulation more reliable and scalable, while improving their ability to collaborate and reproduce results. This presentation will describe the capabilities developed for HydroShare to support the full research data management life cycle. Data can be entered into HydroShare as soon as it is collected, and initially shared only with the team directly working on the data. As analysis proceeds, tools, scripts and models that act on the data to produce research results may be stored in HydroShare resources alongside the data. At the time of publication these resources may be permanently published and receive digital object identifiers and cited in research papers. Resources may themselves include citations to the research papers, thereby linking the publications to the supporting data, scripts and models. HydroShare design choices and capabilities for establishing relationships and versioning, based on simplicity, and ease of use, and some of the challenges encountered, will be discussed.
