I'm always complaining that it's all biomed all the time with new announcements and coolness from publishers - but I just read a press release from Elsevier (I know, I know) about a geosciences project they've got going (heard about this from ResourceShelf). In February, they apparently added automatic linking from data sets archived in PANGAEA to journal articles on ScienceDirect. They're now adding "a map to every ScienceDirect article that has associated research data at PANGAEA; it displays all geographical locations for which such data is available."
I'm not familiar with PANGAEA, but it stands for Publishing Network for Geoscientific & Environmental Data. I guess it's hosted in Germany. All of the datasets have DOIs and a citation.
In a comment on an earlier post on getting credit for infrastructure, Joe Hourclé pointed to an AGU town hall on data stewardship. This town hall meeting deserves a lot more attention since it covers many of the controversial topics - open data, access, curation, peer review, and citation. It also mentions PANGAEA in passing as an effort to support data citation. Seems like Europe is ahead of the US on this - and that's another post 🙂
