Submit Your Data Note
Increase the impact of your research
All Earth publishes research across all fields of Earth Science including cross- and multi-disciplinary studies and sound, reproducible research.
Publishing under an open model, the journal provides an excellent opportunity to obtain a second publication from your research by publishing a data note that is derived from your underlying data.
Turning your data set into a publication adds significant value to your research by presenting and communicating findings to reach new audiences, allowing you to tell the full story of your research in a way that others can draw upon.
What is a data note?
Data notes concisely describe your research data to increase the visibility and transparency of your research, and are peer-reviewed to support the reuse of valuable research data.
Data notes do not include any analyses or conclusions but may be linked to a traditional Research Article reporting analysis of the published dataset, as well as the results and conclusions. Data notes should include:
- Dataset rationale, protocol, and validation details
- Information about any limitations of the dataset
- Information on where and how to access the dataset, as part of a Data Availability Statement
- Reference to the dataset using a formal citation
- Where applicable, cite and summarize any previous publications that use the data presented
