Data Journals

Data journals are publications whose primary purpose is to publish datasets. They enable you as an author to focus on the data itself, rather than producing an extensive analysis of the data which occurs in the traditional journal model. Fundamentally, data journals seek to:

  • Promote scientific accreditation and reuse;
  • Improve transparency of scientific methods and results;
  • Support good data management practices;
  • Provide an accessible and permanent route to the dataset.
