Abstract

A poster to show the overlay journals and the path to data publication for the meteorological sciences. Scientific publication mainly focuses on the analysis, interpretation and conclusions drawn from a given dataset, as these are the information that can be easily published in hard copy text format with diagrams. Scrutinising the raw data that forms the dataset is more difficult, as datasets are usually stored in digital media, in a variety of (often proprietary or non-standard) formats. This means that the peer-review process is generally only applied to the methodology and final conclusions of a piece of work, and not the underlying data itself. Yet for the conclusions to stand, the data must be of good quality. A process of data publication, involving peer-review of datasets would be of benefit to many sectors of the academic community.
