Good afternoon Amber,
I’m working on a research question related to network analysis of the DataONE community.
Do you happen to know if documentation exists on the docs.dataone.org site pertaining to criteria for membership in the docs.dataone.org community?
The reason I’m asking you is I remembered you’d set up permissions for me on the site.
So, I’m assuming you’re the “gatekeeper” and would be the best person to ask about who is granted access.
Thanks for any help on this,

Subject: Re: docs.dataone access
There is no official documentation on who has access and who does not; no real ‘policy’ per se but there is recognition such a policy might be beneficial
anyone doing work for us should have access to the site.
- leadership team
- WG members
As of this correspondence, except for interns, people who transition out of DataONE do not have access taken away, according to Budden.
DataONE retains ability to control access to specific materials:
(sensitive) documents that are for the Leadership Team only.
“culture of open science” dissuades expanding to other folders
exception: Anyone can become a member of our DataONE Users Group (DUG); therefore, DUG members are not granted access to Working Group materials to prevent viewing “without any context.”
When people transition out of DataONE we have not been restricting their access, with the exception of interns.
