Data Journals

If you have large sets of research data that you want to share, consider publishing them in a data journal.  Data journals are typically open access, peer-reviewed publications.   Data creators submit their datasets to be peer-reviewed and published.  The work is then citable by others and can be tracked for impact. Open access data journals include biomedical, public health and psychosocial coverage.

The list of data journals is rapidly growing.  The following are a small number of data journals that researchers on the UMB campus may find useful.
