PANGAEA (Geoscience & Environmental Data) linked with Elsevier’s Science Direct

Netherland Elsevier and PANGAEA announce next step in connecting research articles to data - 30 Jul 2010

“STM publisher Elsevier, Netherlands, and PANGAEA – Publishing Network for Geoscientific & Environmental Data – have announced their next step in interconnecting the diverse elements of scientific research. Elsevier articles at ScienceDirect are now enriched with graphical information linking to associated research data sets that are deposited at PANGAEA.

PANGAEA is a data library which links primary data related to articles in earth and environmental science journals and thus may serve some hundred journals of the Elsevier portfolio. In the first phase, more than 1,000 articles from various earth science journals were linked. The data are freely available from the publication’s page in ScienceDirect, without a login or subscription.

The latest initiative follows the introduction, last February, of ‘reciprocal linking’ – automatically linking research data sets deposited at PANGAEA to corresponding articles in Elsevier journals on its electronic platform ScienceDirect and vice versa. The new feature adds a map to every ScienceDirect article that has associated research data at PANGAEA. It displays all geographical locations for which such data is available. A single click then brings the user from the ScienceDirect article to the research data set at PANGAEA.”

Geoscientific & Environmental Data available linked to ScienceDirect articles

 
 

Netherland Elsevier, PANGAEA link content for easier access to full earth system research25 Feb 2010

"STM publisher Elsevier, Netherlands, has announced that the data library PANGAEA - Publishing Network for Geoscientific & Environmental Data – and Elsevier have implemented reciprocal linking between their respective content in earth system research. Research data sets deposited at PANGAEA are now automatically linked to the corresponding articles in Elsevier journals on its electronic platform ScienceDirect and vice versa. The linking functionality also provides a credit mechanism for research data sets deposited in this data library.

The interaction of a publisher with an open access data repository is projected as being ideal to serve the requirements of modern research by diminishing the loss of research data. It also enables the reader of a publication to verify the scientific findings and to use the data in his/her own work. The Elsevier-PANGAEA cooperation follows the most recent recommendations of funding bodies and international organisations, such as the OECD, about access to research data from public funding.

Working with the scientific community to preserve scientific research data is also an objective of the Elsevier Content Innovation programme. Through the latest agreement, Elsevier expects to support long-term storage, wide availability and preservation of large research data sets.
