The CODATA Data Science Journal Volume 12 (2013) is now available.
The Data Science Journal is a peer-reviewed, open access, electronic journal publishing papers on the management of data and databases in Science and Technology. The scope of the Journal includes descriptions of data systems, their publication on the internet, applications and legal issues. All of the Sciences are covered, including the Physical Sciences, Engineering, the Geosciences and the Biosciences, along with Agricultural and the Medical Sciences.
The Journal publishes data or data compilations, if the quality of data is excellent or if significant efforts are required in compilation.
The Journal publishes online simulation, database, and other experiments overcoming the inherent limitations of traditional, static print journals, thereby adding an entirely new dimension to the communication and exchange of data research results and educational materials.
We would like to acknowledge, with thanks, the financial contribution of UNESCO to the funding of the journal.
