Call for Submissions: Data in Brief
Data in Brief is a multidisciplinary, open access, peer-reviewed journal that mainly publishes short, digestible data articles that describe and provide access to research data. In addition, it publishes review and perspective articles that elaborate on data sharing practices, and letters to editors that comment on datasets previously published in Data in Brief. Data in Brief contributes to open science and improves reproducibility by making data and the associated research more discoverable, opening doors for collaboration, and reducing duplication of effort. The journal supports the FAIR Data Principles, which state that research data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. The journal welcomes submissions from all subject areas.
