Statement of Commitment from Earth and Space Science Publishers and Data Facilities

Eine neue gebildete “Coalition on Publishing Data in the Earth and Space Sciences”, darunter Verlage und Gesellschaften wie AGU, Copernicus, EGU, Elsevier, Nature, Science, und Wiley (vgl. Übersicht unten) hat eine bemerkenswerte Erklärung veröffentlicht, in der sie sich verpflichten, die Publikation von Daten voranzutreiben und diese auch zitierfähig zu machen.

„This statement of commitment signals important progress and a continuing commitment by publishers and data facilities to enable open data in the Earth and space sciences.”

Sie stellen unter anderem, fest, dass, trotz langjähriger Praxis von Datensupplementen, die Nachnutzung der Daten aufgrund großer Heterogenität sehr schwierig bis unmöglich ist.

“Scholarly publication is a key high value entry point in making data available, open, discoverable, and usable. Most publishers have statements related to the inclusion or release of data as part of publication, recognizing that inclusion of the full data enhances the value and is part of the integrity of the research. Unfortunately, the vast majority of data submitted along with publications are in formats and forms of storage that makes discovery and reuse difficult or impossible.”

Um dieses Ziel zu erreichen:

“Earth and space science data should, to the greatest extent possible, be stored in appropriate domain repositories that are widely recognized and used by the community, follow leading practices, and can provide additional data services. We will work with researchers, funding agencies, libraries, institutions, and other stakeholders to direct data to appropriate repositories, respecting repository policies.”

… verpflichten Sie sich unter anderem hierzu:

“- To promote referencing of data sets using the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles, in which citations of data sets should be included within reference lists.
– To Include in research papers concise statements indicating where data reside and clarifying availability.
– To promote and implement links to data sets in publications and corresponding links to journals in data facilities via persistent identifiers. Data sets should ideally be referenced using registered DOI’s.”
