The abstract reads as follows: “In our increasingly digital age, access to data is becoming faster and easier. This has many positive consequences for scientific discovery, but it also presents challenges for protecting the data collectors and ensuring proper citation (e.g., M. A. Parsons et al., Eos, 91(34), 297, doi:10.1029/2010EO340001).
