German open source platform BEXIS 2 and academic publisher Pensoft have announced a new partnership, as a result of which, scientists are now able to publish data papers in three of the most innovative Pensoft journals - Biodiversity Data Journal (BDJ), One Ecosystem and Metabarcoding and Metagenomics (MBMG) - using EML data packs from BEXIS 2.
In order to encourage and facilitate high-quality data publication, the collaboration allows for researchers to easily store, analyse and manage their data via BEXIS 2, before sharing it with the scientific community in a creditable format.
The newly implemented workflow requires researchers to first download their data from the free open source BEXIS 2 software and, then, upload the data pack on Pensoft's ARPHA Journal Publishing Platform where the data can be further elaborated to comply to the established Data Paper standards. Within the software, they can work freely on these data.
Having selected a journal and a data paper article template, a single click at an 'Import a manuscript' button transfers the data into a manuscript in ARPHA Authoring Tool. Within the collaborative writing tool, the data owner can invite co-authors and peers to help him/her finalise the paper.
Once submitted to a journal, the article undergoes a peer review and data auditing and, if accepted for publication, is published to take advantage of all perks available at any Pensoft journal, including easy discoverability and increased citability.
The collaboration between Pensoft and BEXIS 2 is set to strengthen in the next few months, when a new import workflow is expected to provide an alternative way to publish datasets.
