Through data publishing, we aim to make scientific data more reusable, discoverable, interpretable, and citable.
We facilitate data publishing in open access journals Scientific Data and BMC Research Notes; through Registered Reports in BMC journals; and pilot projects on data citation and data badges.
Springer Nature’s flagship open data journal, Scientific Data, offers authors the opportunity to describe and share their research data with a wide audience.
BMC Research Notes publishes dark data - single observations,
short null results, orphan data and confirmatory results. The
‘data note’ article type offers authors a peer-reviewed, citeable
summary of their data.
Our Research Data Helpdesk helps authors and editors find out how best to deal with their data and understand funder and institute mandates. With journal-level Research Data Policies, we ensure that the data at the heart of scholarly research are appropriately archived and, where possible, widely accessible.
