Why publish

We are often asked why publish best practices. We publish our observations, analyses and research. We are asked to publish the data used in these efforts. Yet if we do not publish or include the methods used, the results are harder to understand and to reproduce. To support reproducibility and interoperability, we created a section (Research Topic) of the Frontiers in Marine Science called “Best Practices in Ocean Observing” as a peer reviewed place to share your best practices. We call this our “Journal”. https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/7173/best-practices-in-ocean-observing
