Despite policies and calls for scientists to make data available, this is not happening for most environmental- and biodiversity-related data because scientists' concerns about these efforts have not been answered and initiatives to motivate scientists to comply have been inadequate. Many of the issues regarding data availability can be addressed if the principles of “publication” rather than “sharing” are applied. However, online data publication systems also need to develop mechanisms for… 
Beyond dead trees: integrating the scientific process in the Biodiversity Data Journal
TLDR
The first series of papers published in Biodiversity Data Journal (BDJ) are announced, which provides the first workflow to support the full life cycle of a manuscript - from writing through submission, community peer-review, publication and dissemination, all within a single online collaborative environment.
The data paper: a mechanism to incentivize data publishing in biodiversity science
TLDR
The establishment of the 'biodiversity data paper' is proposed as one possible mechanism to offer scholarly recognition for efforts and investment by data publishers in authoring rich metadata and publishing them as citable academic papers.
Enforcing public data archiving policies in academic publishing: A study of ecology journals
TLDR
A qualitative, interview-based study with journal editorial staff and other stakeholders in the academic publishing process to examine how journals enforce data archiving policies, revealing little consensus with regard to how data Archiving policies should be enforced and who should hold authors accountable for dataset submissions.
Strategies and guidelines for scholarly publishing of biodiversity data
TLDR
Policy and guidelines for scholarly publishing of biodiversity and biodiversity-related data, elaborated and updated during the Framework Program 7 EU BON project are described, on the basis of an earlier version published on Pensoft's website in 2011.
Public Data Archiving in Ecology and Evolution: How Well Are We Doing?
TLDR
It is suggested that cultural shifts facilitating clearer benefits to authors are necessary to achieve high-quality PDA and key guidelines to help authors increase their data’s reuse potential and compliance with journal data policies are highlighted.
Sharing Scientific Data: Moving Toward “Open Data”
TLDR
Data sharing issues and challenges are unique to each scientific discipline; highlighting these dissimilarities associated with two distinctly different disciplines, ecology and genomics are examined.

Data publication in the open access initiative
TLDR
The 'Berlin Declaration' was published in 2003 as a guideline to policy makers to promote the Internet as a functional instrument for a global scientific knowledge base and today, access to scientific data is hampered by structural deficits in the publication process.
Promoting Access to Public Research Data for Scientific, Economic, and Social Development
TLDR
The authors present their research findings, based closely on their report to OECD, on key issues in data access, as well as operating principles and management aspects necessary to successful data access regimes.
Supplementary data need to be kept in public repositories
TLDR
This analysis recommends that scientific journals adopt a policy, similar to Nature's, of requiring that authors submit data to public repositories, if relevant repositories exist, and that the journal version should contain accession numbers, URLs and other appropriate specific indicators to the data source in the repositories.
Interoperability of biodiversity databases: biodiversity information on every desktop.
TLDR
The Global Biodiversity Information Facility is a framework for facilitating the digitization of biodiversity data and for making interoperable an as-yet-unknown number of biodiversity databases that are distributed around the globe.
'Ocean biodiversity informatics': a new era in marine biology research and management
TLDR
Ocean biodiversity informatics is the use of computer technologies to manage marine biodiversity information, including data capture, storage, search, retrieval, visualisation, mapping, modelling, analysis and publication, and complements the traditional disciplines of taxonomy, ecology and biogeography.
An International Framework to Promote Access to Data
TLDR
It is argued that an international framework of principles and guidelines for data access is needed to better realize this potential, and a framework for locating and analyzing where improvements can be made in data access regimes is provided.
Shedding Light on the Dark Data in the Long Tail of Science
  • P. Heidorn
  • Computer Science, Economics
    Libr. Trends
  • 2008
TLDR
How the concepts from long-tail economics can be used to understand potential solutions for better curation of dark data is discussed, which is not carefully indexed and stored and therefore is more likely to remain underutilized and eventually lost.
The status of taxonomic literature
Informatics and hypothesis‐driven research
TLDR
It is suggested that research databases that are populated and analysed according to specific ‘data-driven discovery’ techniques, not as providing data, but rather as providing significant ‘added value’.
Taxonomic information exchange and copyright: the Plazi approach
TLDR
The information found in Plazi's databases – taxonomic treatments as well as the metadata of the publications – are in the public domain and can therefore be used for further scientific research without any restriction, whether or not contained in copyrighted publications.
