EASYDAB (Earth System Data Branding)

EASYDAB, the new quality seal for carefully curated Earth System datasets.


EASYDAB, the Earth System Data Branding recently developed within the AtMoDat project, aims at fostering the easy discoverability and re-use of quality-checked
research data in repositories. 

The EASYDAB logo indicates that the dataeasydab mini

  • have an open license,
  • are published with DataCite DOI
  • meet the FAIR Data Principles, and
  • have been checked by the data repository for compliance with a certified quality guideline.

The ATMODAT standard is the first accepted EASYDAB quality guideline. It was specifically developed for the publication of atmospheric model data. Repositories can fall back to other quality standards as long as they achieve a comparable matureness of the published data, as specified in the EASYDAB guideline

The EASYDAB branding can be adopted by data repositories that store data from the Earth System Sciences. Data or dataset collections that have been checked for compliancy with the EASYDAB guideline can be earmarked with the EASYDAB logo on the landing page. The EASYDAB logo is registered and only useable by repositories with a contract. 

Using the EASYDAB logo, repositories can highlight that archived data have been carefully curated. For data users, the EASYDAB logo makes it easier to identify quality controlled data.

 EASYDAB datasets will stand out from others, making them more attractive to download, use and cite.
