Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced its implementation of reciprocal linking between Earth Science content on ScienceDirect and related data sets of the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory Tennessee (ORNL).

The ORNL Distributed Active Archive Center (ORNL DAAC), which is funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, US, provides facilities for archiving, discovery and accessibility of biogeochemical dynamics data. Research datasets deposited at the ORNL DAAC are now automatically linked to relevant articles in Elsevier journals available on ScienceDirect using DOIs, and vice versa.

This fruitful cooperation between Elsevier and the ORNL DAAC promotes the flow of data into trusted archives and supports long-term storage, wide availability and preservation of research data. Interconnecting journal articles and relevant data serves the needs of researchers and funding agencies by diminishing the loss of data and helps researchers find data that is necessary to reproduce results from the literature.
