Authors publishing in Marine Pollution Bulletin have the possibility of depositing data at the digital library PANGAEA (http://www.pangaea.de) and linking this data with their online article on ScienceDirect. PANGAEA functions as an Open Access data repository, where authors (or data managers for large projects) can deposit their data and provide the relevant publication information.
This data is quality-controlled and archived selleck compound by an editor in standard machine-readable formats to help improve re-usability and interoperability – adding value in a way that is very specific to this scientific domain. By establishing reciprocal links between PANGAEA and ScienceDirect, we are helping to improve the visibility and discoverability of both data sets
Anti-diabetic Compound Library nmr and articles in order to make it easier for researchers to find primary data and to find articles using a specific data set. In addition, these links add valuable context to primary data by connecting them to published articles that may describe how the data was gathered and analyzed, how it can be interpreted, and whether there are any limitations to re-use. Taking the concept of connecting data and articles to a next level, PANGAEA and Elsevier have bundled forces to develop an application on ScienceDirect that integrates data into the article view, bringing the data even closer to the journal reader. The application is shown in the screenshot in Fig. 1. When an article is displayed on ScienceDirect, the application queries PANGAEA to find out which data sets have been used for the research described
in this paper. The locations MycoClean Mycoplasma Removal Kit of these data sets are displayed on a Google Map viewer, giving the reader a sense of the relevance of these data sets right away. The map is interactive, allowing the reader to explore the data by zooming out for context, zooming in for detail, etc. The data place-markers are linked to PANGAEA, providing easy access to the actual primary data sets. As an author of Marine Pollution Bulletin (as well as 140+ other participating journals), you are able to enrich your next publication to the benefit of your readers with this feature by depositing your data at PANGAEA. More information and instructions are available in the Guide for Authors at http://www.elsevier.com/journals/marine-pollution-bulletin/0025-326X/guide-for-authors#88100. In addition to the existing PANGAEA data-integration application, we are exploring additional ways to enrich the online article and add information to enable a better connection of oceanographic data and sampling, for example by linking cruise information or by exposing related data to interested readers. All these new features are made possible by a close collaboration with scientists and institutes that make us, as publishers, aware of the specific needs of the diverse scientific communities.
