Repositories for Text and Data Publications

GEO-LEOe-docs is the geoscientific repository for texts and geological maps, maintained by the FID GEO and operated at the Göttingen State and University Library (SUB Göttingen). GEO-LEOe-docs serves as a platform for so called Green Open Access publications (secondary publications). It also offers an interactive overview map with access to digitised geological maps (GK25). On GEO-LEOe-docs all documents are freely accessible and referenced with DOI. Various ongoing net publications are released here as digital first publications.

GFZ Data Services is the subject-specific research data repository for the geosciences and related disciplines, through which research data have been published with DOI since 2004. Today, GFZ Data Services is an internationally recognized repository for citable and DOI referenced geoscientific data, software and the assignment of International Generic Sample Numbers (IGSN = PID for physical samples).

Data policies of learned societies journals

Created by Andreas Hübner | | Allgemein

FID GEO has published a study about data policies of 31 journals from the geosciences and biodiversity research, which are published by German professional societies or research institutions.

The statements on data publication in the data policies and author guidelines of the journals were compared with 14 pre-defined features of data policies. The quality of data policies is discussed and recommendations are provided to raise the awareness of German professional societies / research institutions about data publishing and to support them in introducing or improving journal data policies.

Earth science and biodiversity journals can improve support for data publication. Preprint, DOI https://doi.org/10.23689/fidgeo-3818
