SourceData and BioStudies bring open data sharing to EMBO Press

Heidelberg/Germany, Hinxton/UK, 9 December 2018 – SourceData from EMBO is an open platform that makes the data in research papers directly searchable. SourceData describes the contents of figures from scientific articles in a standardized, machine-readable format, allowing articles to be searched and interlinked using their data content. In collaboration with BioStudies from EMBL-EBI, a database that aggregates the data files linked to a specific publication or project, SourceData now offers an integrated workflow to make published data openly accessible and easy to find.
