Barcelona, April 5th 2017 — Global Open Data for Agriculture & Nutrition (GODAN) is pleased to announce the launch of its open publishing initiative for agriculture and nutrition research. The GODAN Gateway will run on the F1000Research platform.
GODAN is convinced that the solution to Zero Hunger lies within existing, but often unavailable, agriculture and nutrition data. Launched in 2013 following a commitment by G8 countries to share agricultural data, GODAN collaborates with over 500 influential and committed partner organizations to spearhead the open data revolution in agriculture and nutrition.
F1000Research is an open science publishing platform that offers publication within a week of submission, followed by invited expert open peer review. This model enables research findings to be made available exceptionally quickly, especially important when this research can help address global issues as urgent as hunger, malnutrition and agricultural sustainability. Published articles, associated data and code, and peer reviews are all openly available for others to access and use.
The GODANGateway is open to contributions from across the research community. It publishes:
Peer reviewed articles describing open data and informatics projects relevant to agriculture and nutrition, as well as methods and tools that enable, utilize and analyse such data.
GODAN’s outputs including all policy documents, impact reports and discussion papers.
Poster and slide presentations focussed on open agriculture & nutrition.
F1000Research is an open research publishing platform for life scientists, from F1000, that offers immediate publication and transparent peer review, avoiding editorial bias and ensuring the inclusion of all source data. All articles must pass an initial in-house quality check and are then published in an open access format on F1000Research. Following open, invited peer review (where the referee’s name and affiliation and the referee reports are published alongside the article), authors can revise their article, which are then published as new article versions. Once articles are deemed to have passed peer review they are indexed in PubMed, Scopus, Embase and other databases. https://f1000research.com
COMING SOON! A free e-learning programme on open data is going to help strengthen the capacity of data producers and data consumers to manage and use open data in agriculture and nutrition. This course is developed as part of the capacity development activities within the GODAN Action project and will start in autumn 2017.Read more
