Data Publication


In the past few years, new formats for the publication of research data have been developed, which allow data to be published as citable publications with their own DOI. In addition to the traditional supplement to a journal article, most fields now offer the possibility to publish data independently from research results in data repositories or data journals. The varied possibilities often serve similar purposes, all of which are united under the issue of fostering good scientific practice. Principal goals in doing so are: the long-term security and availability of data, transparency and reproducibility of scientific results and re-usability of data in the interest of sustainability. However, in some cases, the weighting of these goals and their implementation vary greatly between different offers. The developmental stage of the particular field is an additional factor. While some fields have practiced the publication of all materials (including research data) that form the basis of an article for several decades, others have only recently begun developing a standard of publishing research data.


A very good summary of the topic of data publication can be found in:

Data Journals (alphabetic order)

The list below is based on a collection maintained by Sarah Callaghan from The British Atmospheric Data Centre, but has been extended with what we found through internet searches (last updated 12/97/2017). The list is probably not complete. If you are aware of any other data journal, please let us know.

IUCrData IUCrData is a peer-reviewed open-access data publication from the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr). This innovative publication aims to provide short descriptions of crystallographic datasets and datasets from related scientific disciplines, as well as facilitating access to the data. The primary article category is Data Reports; these describe crystal structures of inorganic, metal-organic or organic compounds. Information on each crystal structure includes the crystallographic data (CIF and structure factors), a data validation report, figures and a text representation of the data.
