Environmental Research Letters — accompanying data published free

UK Environmental journal allows authors to publish raw data files alongside their articles – 22 Feb 2010

"Non-profit scientific publisher Institute of Physics (IOP) Publishing, UK, has announced that its open access journal, Environmental Research Letters, now provides authors with the ability to publish raw data files alongside their article, for free.

Yu Song et al. from Peking University, China, are the first authors to take advantage of this newly available option. In their paper, ‘A new emission inventory for nonagricultural open fires in Asia from 2000 to 2009′ the authors combine MODIS burned product (MCD45A1) with other data to produce a comprehensive dataset. The dataset presented in this work is being made available to download for free as supplementary material to the article and is available at http://www.iop.org/EJ/mmedia/1748-9326/5/1/014014/.

Environmental Research Letters seeks to provide a coherent and integrated approach including research articles, perspectives, news and editorials, as well as meeting notices for the environmental science community. The journal now offers all authors the option to publish their raw data as supplementary data material alongside their article, if they wish to."
