Collaboration aims at new journal option for biodiversity data publishers
A new collaboration aims to increase the options for researchers to gain visibility and recognition for biodiversity datasets published through the GBIF network. GBIF is collaborating with the editors of Scientific Data, the new open access, online journal from Nature Publishing Group due to launch in May 2014.
The journal introduces a new type of content called the ‘data descriptor’ (data descriptors closely resemble the data paper concept), aimed at making scientifically valuable datasets more discoverable, interpretable and reusable.
