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 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).

On Wednesday 27 May 2020, 10 – 11 am, the Specialised Information Services for Geosciences (FID GEO) and for Cartography and Geodata (FID Karten) will present their services at the online conference #vBIB20. The programm is online, participation free of charge. 

This includes guidance and services for electronic publishing, the digitisation of texts and maps, the publication of research data, advice on the acquisition of basic geodata and maps and the provision of tools for subject-specific literature research.

You will get to know these services better, so to use them for your scientists on site or make them known to your local researchers. Libraries and research data units in academic institutions are important partners for us, therefore we would also like to talk about your own ideas and wishes regarding information infrastructures and topics of your interest.

We particularly welcome librarians, subject specialists and staff from research data units. All other participants are of course equally welcome.


About #vBIB20
