Scientific Data to complement and promote public data repositories

Scientific Data to complement and promote public data repositories | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Scientific Data will be a forum for publications about datasets, but will not be a repository for primary datasets. Primary data associated with Data Descriptors will be stored in one or more external data repositories. Why this distinction?

 

This strategy helps us draw some clear lines around the goals of Scientific Data.  By ensuring that the primary datasets are stored in external systems, we make it crystal clear that our goal is to help authors publish content that promotes the scientific value and reusability of their datasets, not to control access to data. We feel that this is a progressive strategy that will help promote collaboration and data consolidation, rather than fragmentation.

Indeed, their concept of direct storage has evolved to a indirect ones with a central tools: the data descriptor. Then, it will not be a dpositary structure that will provided but an evironment to seggregate publications of rich data descriptions stored in different places (journals, Dryad, figshare, and other local storage (i.e. lab and universities servers). Science Date is focus now on provinding: 

"- A publication platform for detailed methods descriptions and technical validation information

- Data search and discovery features that reach across diverse repositories

- Peer-review of data release

- The career credit that is duly associated with rigorously peer-reviewed publications"

By allowing readers to comment and debate about specific papers publicly,  PubMed Commons is trying to extend the peer-review of manuscripts after their publication. If successful, PubMed Commons will become a platform for scientific discussions that could foster constructive criticism and eventually improve published papers and science.
