FREE publication for studies using linked biodiversity data in Biodiversity Data Journal in 2023

11 May 2023

EU-funded project BiCIKL (Biodiversity Community Integrated Knowledge Library) launched an article collection in Biodiversity Data Journal (BDJ) to prompt and collate studies that demonstrate how biodiversity data are shared in a way that makes them easily harvested, distributed and re-used, in order to generate new knowledge, thereby taking advantage of advanced publishing. 

The collection is titled “Linking FAIR biodiversity data through publications: The BiCIKL approach” and can already be seen on the journal website. Further information about the collection, as well as the submission guidelines and requirements are made available on the Pensoft blog.

The submission deadline is 31 December 2023. All articles accepted in the collection will be published for free.

BiCIKL - a Horizon 2020-funded project, coordinated by Pensoft, is dedicated to building a new community of key research infrastructures, researchers and citizen scientists by using linked FAIR biodiversity data at all stages of the research lifecycle, from specimens through sequencing, imaging, identification of taxa, etc. to final publication in novel, re-usable, human-readable and machine-interpretable scholarly articles. The mission of the consortium is to achieve a culture change in how biodiversity data are being identified, linked, integrated and re-used.

The new article collection welcomes taxonomic and other biodiversity-related research articlesdata papers, software descriptions, and methodological/theoretical papers. These should demonstrate the advantages and novel approaches in accessing and (re-)using linked biodiversity data.
