The best practices for data publication, builds on a successful initiative started in 2007 by [http://www.earthchem.org/ EarthChem], to develop and promote best practices for the reporting of geochemical data in scholarly articles and data systems. It is a community-based initiative, conceived by editors, publishers, and operators of data facilities at a series of workshops organized by [http://www.iedadata.org/ IEDA] (Integrated Earth Data Applications) and [http://www.earthchem.org/ EarthChem] at major scientific conferences. It is an effort to foster and facilitate communication and knowledge exchange among editors and publishers of Earth Science journals as well as data facilities. Our goal is to develop and promote best practices for scholarly publishing, with an emphasis on data publication in support of open access policies.
