Nature Publishing has announced a new tool called Scientific Data. Scientific Data will be a place to publish information about data sets, but not the data itself. The goal is to create a way to promote data, but allow creators to maintain control over the access to their data.
These two posts provide a bit more information about Scientific Data:
- Scientific Data to complement and promote public data repositories
- Eight questions introducing Scientific Data’s criteria for publication
Researchers and faculty from UT can use campus resources to host and provide access to their data, and then submit their data for publication in Scientific Data to provide wider promotion. For questions about UT Austin data management resources, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
