PANGAEA® - Data Publisher for Earth & Environmental Science

PANGAEA - Data Publisher for Earth & Environmental Science is hosted jointly by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) and the Center for Marine Environmental Sciences (MARUM) at the University of Bremen.

Services supplied by the long-term archive and data library PANGAEA include long-term archiving of data, data publication and dissemination as well as scientific data management. Georeferenced and quality controlled data and metadata is archived following the "Recommendations of the Commission on Professional Self Regulation in Science" for safeguarding good scientific practice and the OECD "Principles and Guidelines for Access to Research Data from Public Funding".

PANGAEA is member of the ICSU World Data System (WDS), created by the International Council for Science (ICSU). Jointly hosted by the MARUM and the AWI, PANGAEA is laid out as a permanent facility, guaranteeing the long-term availability and accessibility of archived data and metadata in secure and machine readable formats.

Each dataset includes a bibliographic citation and is persistently identified using a Digital Object Identifier (DOI Name) allowing it to be identified, shared, published and cited. Citations are available through the portal of the German National Library of Science and Technology (GetInfo). By way of the DOI registry data sets can also be retrieved from library catalogues or cross-referenced with traditional publications.

A successful cooperation with Elsevier along with the correspondent technical implementation enables the cross-referencing of scientific publications and data sets archived as supplements to these publications on the webpages of ScienceDirect and PANGAEA. A direct link brings the ScienceDirect user from the publication to the data sets archived as supplements at PANGAEA. (e.g. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gloplacha.2011.06.006).

PANGAEA is also the recommended depository for data supplements to Elsevier publications in three subject areas (Agriculture and Biological Sciences, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Environmental Sciences). The „Guidelines for Authors“ of about 500 Journals recommend depositing supplementary data at PANGAEA and emphasise the cross-linking application.
