Publication of scientific data at GFZ

The GFZ serves access to scientific data in different ways.

Starting in 2012 the library offers some formats for data publishing which where not available up to now. Following the standard in scientific text publications all data sets get a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) assigned, can be cited and are publicly and persistently available.

Furthermore, the journals: Earth System Science Data (ESSD), Earth and Space Science, Geoscience Data Journal or Scientific Data offer an alternative way to publish data.
