The international community offers principles for data repositories to improve opportunities for discovering, accessing, and using research data. The TRUST Principles for Digital Repositories recommend transparency, responsibility, user focus, sustainability, and technology to support data reuse (Lin, et al., 2020). The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) Data Management Principles (DMP) include ten principles to improve data discoverability, accessibility, usability, preservation, and curation and the GEOSS Data Sharing Principles (DSP) advocate the adoption of three principles to ensure that data are shared openly without restrictions or delays. The availability of such principles, along with others guidance documents, does not have to be a trade-off, where adoption of some principles preclude the deployment of others. Synergistic approaches can be applied to implement practices that are consistent with more than one set of recommendations. Commonalities among such principles are represented to offer insight into ways of establishing practices that address multiple principles simultaneously. Further delineation of such commonalities should be considered to provide guidance for implementing these and other principles in a synergistic manner. This poster was presented at the 2021 Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Winter Meeting held virtually in January 2021.
