BIG DATA and data sharing

Datacite

An international organization with a Managing Agent (currently the German National Library of Science and Technology, TIB) along with regional Members.

  • establish easier access to research data
  • increase acceptance of research data as legitimate contributions in the scholarly record, and to
  • support data archiving to permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study.

GigaDB

"GigaDB contains discoverable, trackable, and citable data that have been assigned DOIs and are available for public download and use."

This is a part of GIGASCIENCE, the journal -

Open access with funding from BGI - Beijing Genomics Institute

"aims to revolutionize data dissemination, organization, understanding, and use. An online open-access open-data journal, we publish 'big-data' studies from the entire spectrum of life and biomedical sciences. To achieve our goals, the journal has a novel publication format: one that links standard manuscript publication with an extensive database that hosts all associated data and provides data analysis tools and cloud-computing resources.

Our scope covers not just 'omic' type data and the fields of high-throughput biology currently serviced by large public repositories, but also the growing range of more difficult-to-access data, such as imaging, neuroscience, ecology, cohort data, systems biology and other new types of large-scale sharable data.""

biosharing

"works to register well-constituted efforts developing biosciences standards and collaborate with other groups, portals and resources to progressively monitoring their:

-development, evolution and integration

-implementation and use in databases

-adoption by data policiesby funders and journals"

The open source ISA metadata tracking tools help to manage an increasingly diverse set of life science, environmental and biomedical experiments that employing one or a combination of technologies.

also from the University of Oxford e-Research Centre.

The Nature journal series will also launch in Spring 2014, a new online-only publication called "Scientific Data"

"Scientific Data is a new open-access, online-only publication for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets. It introduces a new type of content called the Data Descriptor, which will combine traditional narrative content with curated, structured descriptions of research data, including detailed methods and technical analyses supporting data quality. Scientific Data will initially focus on the life, biomedical and environmental science communities, but will be open to content from a wide range of scientific disciplines. Publications will be complementary to both traditional research journals and data repositories, and will be designed to foster data sharing and reuse, and ultimately to accelerate scientific discovery."
