This article provides a commentary about the state of integrated, coordinated, open, and networked (ICON) principles in Earth and Planetary Science Processes (EPSP) and discussion on the opportunities and challenges of adopting them. This commentary focuses on the challenges with current inclusive, equitable, and accessible science and highlights how research undertaken in the earth and planetary surface processes community currently benefit from and would be able to grow as a discipline with more directed implementation of ICON principles.
