Vanessa et al.--

The Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) of the
International Council for Science (ICSU) now publishes the Data
Science Journal, an online peer-reviewed journal focused on the
management of scientific and technological data and databases. The
journal is accessible at:


The journal began in 2002 and has published three issues to date.
The scope of the journal is listed below.

The journal submission instructions don't appear to have any explicit
instructions regarding the citation of datasets. If you're interested,
I can ask the Editor and/or the Journal Subcommittee of the CODATA
Executive Board about this (I'm a member of the Executive Board, but
not this subcommittee).

If you have any specific questions about the journal, please let me

Cheers, Bob.
