AquaDocs is an open access repository covering the natural marine, estuarine/brackish and freshwater environments. It includes all aspects of the science, technology, management and conservation of these environments, their organisms and resources, and the economic, sociological and legal aspects.

AquaDocs was developed in 2021 by merging content from two former repositories, Aquatic Commons and OceanDocs, and is used by researchers, students, information and data managers, government officials and policy-makers.

AquaDocs offers the following benefits:

  • To make aquatic and marine science information FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) for all.

  • To offer a repository platform to those organizations and individuals without the infrastructure to support their own.

  • To provide a capacity development opportunity for the IODE and IAMSLIC Communities.

AquaDocs is funded and managed by the UNESCO/IOC International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) and the International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) with support from the FAO Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts. It is hosted with Atmire using the Open Repository software.

AquaDocs is operated by Project Managers with guidance from a Steering Group that reports to the IAMSLIC Executive Board and the IODE Committee. Steering Group members include Project Managers, IODE IT Advisor, Invited Experts from the IAMSLIC and IODE communities, and representatives from the IAMSLIC Executive Board and IODE Secretariat.
