Best practices are created by the community for the community. The Ocean Best Practices System (OBPS) (https://www.oceanbestpractices.org) under the auspices of the IOC will support the end-to-end best practices value chain.
The OBPS consists of:
a permanent OBPS repository hosted by International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) including state-of-the-art semantic discovery and metadata indexing for improved access to best practices (search.oceanbestpractices.org)
a peer-reviewed Research Topic Journal in Frontiers in Marine Science
a web-based and in-person Training and Capacity Building capability based on the IODE OceanTeacher Global Academy
Community outreach and engagement activities to help users integrate OBPS into their routine work.
