FID GEO offers information and advice on the publication of research data for the geoscience community. We also offer the service of publishing your research data. This service is limited to the publication of data that are the basis for articles published in scientific journals. If you would like to publish other types of data, we will be happy to provide advice.
WHY PUBLISH RESEARCH DATA?
The scientific community as well as research funding agencies increasingly demand open access to research data (publication of data in Open Access) in order to be able to verify published research results and access the data for reuse.
Publishing research data provides opportunities not just for researchers, but also for science in general. Read more. A video (not only) to entertain you: A data management horror story (4:40). This is what shouldn’t happen when a researcher makes a data sharing request!
ADVICE FOR RESEARCHERS AND RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS
The publication of research data is a relatively new topic and, accordingly, scientists and information departments in research facilities have many questions. This is why we prepared a list of “Frequently Asked Questions” to answer some of your questions. For more information on the topic, please contact us.
OUR SERVICE FOR YOU: WE PUBLISH YOUR DATA
If you would like to publish data with FID GEO, please contact us. We will lead you through the process. FID GEO will publish the data in cooperation with the GFZ Data Services specialists of the German Research Centre for Geosciences, GFZ, in Potsdam, who are familiar with geoscientific data. GFZ Data Services supervises the GFZ data repository and has been publishing data sets with DOIs since 2004.
The FID GEO service is limited to the publication of research data that provide the basis for articles published in scientific journals. If you would like to publish other types of data, such as data not yet linked to a published article or data you don’t plan to link to an article, we will be happy to advise you.
Please refer to our “Frequently Asked Questions” for practical instructions and background information on publishing data with FID GEO.
PUBLISHING DATA AS PART OF RESEARCH DATA MANAGEMENT
Research data management, in short, includes all methods and procedures used to secure the short- and long-term usability of scientific research data. The publication of data may be a vital part of data management.
Geoscientists who would like to learn more about this topic can refer to the brochure “”. The brochure illustrates the different aspects of research data management and includes many useful links.
