Geoscience Data Journal - Overview - Wiley Online Library 2012-07-17


Use the link to access more information about the new open access, peer reviewed journal of the Royal Meteorological Society published by Wiley. The aims and scope of the journal are as follows: “Geoscience Data Journal provides an Open Access platform where scientific data can be formally published, in a way that includes scientific peer-review. Thus the dataset creator attains full credit for their efforts, while also improving the scientific record, providing version control for the community and allowing major datasets to be fully described, cited and discovered. An online-only journal, GDJ publishes short data papers cross-linked to – and citing – datasets that have been deposited in approved data centres and awarded DOIs. Data is at the heart of science and scientific endeavour. The curation of data and the science associated with it is as important as ever in our understanding of the changing earth system and thereby enabling us to make future predictions. Geoscience Data Journal is working with recognised Data Centres across the globe to develop the future strategy for data publication, the recognition of the value of data and the communication and exploitation of data to the wider science and stakeholder communities. Content description: A data article describes a dataset, giving details of its collection, processing, file formats etc., but does not go into detail of any scientific analysis of the dataset or draw conclusions from that data. The data paper should allow the reader to understand the when, why and how the data was collected, and what the data is. Subject coverage: GDJ will accept contributions in the areas of Weather and Climate; Oceanography; Atmospheric and Ocean Chemistry; Cryosphere; Biosphere and Land Surface and Geology. Article publication fee: This is an Open Access journal and there will be a fee to publish – unless this is waived by the Editor for exceptional circumstances.”
