FID GEO has entered into cooperation agreements with several universities to strengthen cooperation in the publication of research data. The geoscience departments or institutes as well as the libraries of the respective universities emphasize in the agreement their support for the service to publish data supplements (1).
In this way, the FID GEO service for data publication is clearly defined for university researchers, and the infrastructure facilities with their possibly existing own publication services are involved. The FID GEO also offers to exchange metadata with the home institutions of the researchers, as they usually want to be informed about the publications of their scientists.
So far, agreements have been concluded with Freie Universität Berlin, University of Potsdam, and University of Göttingen.
(1) Data supplements: research data set that is the basis of a publication in a scientific journal.
