Abstract

World Data Centers (WDCs) provide scientific data and information systems that help transfer comprehensive knowledge among researchers in a straightforward manner and under a sensitive data policy. However, use and acceptance of a WDC within the scientific community depends on respective knowledge and individual scientific needs. For that reason, the staff of the World Data Center for Marine Environmental Sciences (WDC-MARE) (www.wdc-mare.org) is providing lessons in information and data management in marine geosciences at the University of Bremen in Germany Recently, WDC-MARE expanded this service to scientific programs outside of Germany.
