AbstractODINECET (Ocean Data and Information network for the European Countries in Economical Transition) intends to create a network of marine libraries within the ECET region. Theoretically, ODINs are supposed to develop Data and Information management in different regions. The first stage of ODINECET focuses mainly on aquatic information management. So, according to the IOC Strategic Plan for Oceanographic Data and Information Management (2008-2011) we shall keep with recommendation 4.4 OceanDocs as follows: • The objective of OceanDocs is to make publications of marine science and oceanography more easily and freely accessible to the ocean (and coastal area) research and management community, to enhance scientific cooperation communication at the regional level. • OceanDocs enables researchers to deposit the full text of their works: articles, conference papers, technical reports, working papers, thesis and more. The information management and librarians of the participating institutes will help the researches with the submission of their publications • OceanDocs is a service to enhance scientific communication in marine science and oceanography and will not interfere with the classical book and journal publishing methods. Researches can publish in a scientific journal and at the same time submit their publications on OceanDocs. • OceanDocs is being developed as a distributed network of national repositories, hosted by Member States, as well as regional or international repositories (e.g. Aquatic Commons developed by IAMSLIC) and others. • Researches in development countries have a wealth of information available that often has not been published in widely available journals: e-repositories can be extremely powerful tools to expose this wealth. Capacity building to create the necessary expertise in all Member States to create institutional, national or regional e-repositories will be provided through ODINs. • A second service to be further developed and expanded is OceanExpert: the global directory of marine and freshwater professionals, as well as OceanTeach development. • Capacity building and sustainability are important aspects of the IOC Data and Information Strategy and IODE’s record on capacity building includes the building of ODINs in the regions.
