Publisher policies

Revision as of 00:36, 26 May 2021 by P.petrelli (talk | contribs)

Most journals now require for you to publish the data underlining your research when you submit a paper. However, what each journal means by publishing the data can be different and policies and guidelines are frequently updated. More recently most publishers are trying to base their policies on the FAIR principles and they are making an effort to align their requirements.

Many of them now refer to the Coalition for Publishing Data in the Earth and Space Sciences (COPDESS). This provides a common framework to enable the FAIR principles in sharing Earth Science data. 

We collected some information on each publisher data policy and summarised our findings in the pages below:

American_Geophycal_Union - AGU

American_Meteorological_Society - AMC


European_Geophysical_Union - EGU Copernicus publisher



Royal_Meteorological_Society - RMetS


For more information of which data you should be publishing you can check the CLEX_Data_policy page. When you are ready to publish you can find out what to do from the data publishing guidelines page.
