The NASA Science Explorer: A Discovery Platform for Planetary Science

As part of NASA’s Open Source Science Initiative, the NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is extending its database to cover all research funded by the NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD) divisions. The ADS was selected to lead this effort based on its decade-long, groundbreaking efforts in supporting the goals of Open Science for the Astronomy and Astrophysics community. The expansion plan, which has now begun in earnest, involves the creation of a literature-based, open digital information system covering and unifying the fields of Astrophysics, Planetary Science, Heliophysics, and Earth Science. It will also cover NASA funded research in Biological and Physical Sciences. Codenamed NASA Science Explorer, or SciX for short, it will extend ADS to become a permanent major component in the infrastructure of scientific research, providing important contributions towards the goal of open science. In this talk, I will discuss the features of the new system, highlighting the ones which will enhance discovery and access to Planetary Science research.
