In collaboration between Globus, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, and the Center for Hierarchical Materials Design (CHiMaD), we are building the Materials Data Facility (MDF) to advance materials science research. Based on lessons we have learned from direct interactions with materials researchers, we are developing capabilities to promote open data sharing, simplify data publication and curation workflows, encourage data reuse, and provide powerful data discovery interfaces for data of all sizes and sources. Specifically, MDF services will allow individual researchers and institutions to 1) enable publication of large research datasets with flexible policies; 2) grant the ability to publish data directly from local storage, institutional data stores, or from cloud storage, without third-party publishers; 3) build extensible domain-specific metadata; 4) develop publication workflows; and 5) access a discovery model that allows researchers to search, interrogate, and build upon existing published data.
