The Image Data Resource Added to List of “Scientific Data” Recommended Data Repositories
From the OME Blog:
The Image Data Resource (IDR), the world’s largest public bioimage database, is now recommended by Scientific Data as a repository for bioimaging data.
Nature Research journal Scientific Data is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets, and research that advances the sharing and reuse of scientific data. These data descriptors provide a path for publishing datasets associated with scientific publications.
Scientific Data requires that all datasets related to a data descriptor, including experimental, computational and curated data, should be submitted to an appropriate open, public community repository. Although Scientific Datamandates the release of the datasets that accompany their manuscripts, they do not themselves host data. Instead, they encourage submission of data to community-recognized data repositories where possible.
