Publish your datasets when submitting your articles

Open Data is a strategy for incorporating research data into the permanent scientific record by releasing it under an Open Access license. Whether data is deposited in a purpose-built repository or published as Supporting Information alongside a research article, Open Data practices ensure that data remains accessible and discoverable. A growing number of journals ask now authors to publish datasets in reliable FAIR-aligned data repositories when submitting the articles.

In order to facilitate this process, a data compilation is hosted at PANGAEA Data Publisher for Earth and Environmental Science and maintained in the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC) in collaboration with Xiamen University, China and the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche, France. The goal of this data compilation is to ensure the archival and streamlining of data on the biological response to ocean acidification (and other environmental drivers), as well as to provide easy access to the data for all users. 

On PANGAEA (, at the time of article submission, data will be made available to the scientific community in a coherent format and with a citable DOI. Upon acceptation of your manuscript, your datasets will be also accessible through a user-friendly portal ( that allows users to easily access relevant biological response data based on a set of filters. Please note that only datasets related to experimental or observational assessments of ocean acidification impacts and comprising at least 2 carbonate chemistry parameters will be displayed on the data portal.
