Open Access Geoscience Data Journal Launched by Wiley

Hoboken, N.J., July 16, 2012: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., has partnered with the Royal Meteorological Society to launch the Geoscience Data Journal as part of the Wiley Open Access publishing program. The new online-only journal will publish short, earth science data papers cross-linked to datasets that have been deposited in approved data centres and awarded DOIs.

The editorial team, which includes representatives from the Natural Environment Research Council and the British Atmospheric Data Centre, is led by Dr Rob Allan from the UK Met Office, and will work alongside a global network of data centres. The journal will play a crucial role in the curation and archiving of digitally stored datasets, ensuring geosciences data is easily accessible, readable and understandable for years to come.

Geoscience Data Journal is online-only and will publish short data papers (articles describing a dataset, giving details including collection, processing, software and file formats) covering topics ranging from weather and climate, to oceanography, atmospheric chemistry and geology. All published data papers will be linked to datasets, which provide details of the collection, processing and file formatting of data.
