OceanDataPractices (ODPr)is a repository containing a wide variety of “practices” such as manuals and guides related to oceanographic data and information management. It aims at enabling research groups that wish to start a new research project and want to prepare a data management plan to search and find existing methodologies and “best practices”, (a method or technique that has consistently shown results superior to those achieved with other means, and that is considered a benchmark). The service also enables you to submit your own documents that you wish to share with the community. In some cases a “best practice” may become a “standard”.

More information on adopted standards can be accessed at the Ocean Data Standards website.
