An online, open access journal, dedicated to publishing medical research from all disciplines and therapeutic areas. The journal publishes all research study types, from study protocols to phase I trials to meta-analyses, including small or specialist studies. Dryad has declared its willingness to accept medical datasets. You can start the deposition process while submitting to BMJ Open. Supplementary or underlying data related to your paper are accepted. Dryad will provide you with a DOI for your dataset to aid citation and provide a permanent link to the data. - Deborah Fitchett
BioRisk is a peer-reviewed, open-access, online and print, rapidly published journal in ecology and biodiversity science. Currently, Pensoft offers the opportunity to publish Data Papers describing occurrence data and checklists, Barcode-of-Life genome data and biodiversity-related software tools, such as interactive keys and others. - Deborah Fitchett
Biology Letters publishes short, highly-innovative, cutting-edge research articles and opinion pieces accessible to scientists from across the biological sciences. Although the printed version of Biology Letters is limited to 2500 words, there is the facility for Electronic Supplementary Material (ESM). Contents of the ESM might include details of methods, derivations of equations, large tables of data, DNA sequences and computer programs. However, the printed version must include enough detail to satisfy most non-specialist readers. - Deborah Fitchett

An open-access publication (using a Creative Commons-Attribution license) for outstanding research in the life sciences and biomedicine, which ranges from the most fundamental and theoretical work, through to translational, applied, and clinical research. We encourage authors to use rich media and to include links to underlying data in the body of the article. We avoid the publication of substantial supplementary PDFs providing additional experimental details, results and discussion. Instead, all article components (figures, tables, video, and any additional data files) will be presented at the appropriate points in the article, and will be treated as individual items and given a unique identifier (DOI), so that they can be hyperlinked, discovered easily, and used. - Deborah Fitchett
Marine Biodiversity Records - http://journals.cambridge.org/action...
A rapid peer-reviewed, online publications. Marine Biodiversity Records therefore welcomes original research articles which document and review changes in geographical ranges of marine species, including the effects of the introduction of novel or alien species to marine ecosystems, and of taxonomic studies relevant to these changes. - Deborah Fitchett

An open access, rapid peer-reviewed international journal of field research on biological invasions in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems from around the world. BioInvasions Records is devoted primarily to publication of research and data papers on records of non-native species. - Deborah Fitchett
Geoscientific Model Development - http://www.geoscientific-model...
An international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and public discussion of the description, development and evaluation of numerical models of the Earth System and its components. Manuscript types considered for peer-reviewed publication are: Geoscientific model descriptions, from box models to GCMs - Deborah Fitchett
Journal of Open Research Software - http://openresearchsoftware.metajnl.com/
A fully open access way to discover research resources that are spread across multiple locations and usually hard to find. Metapapers reward authors for openly archiving their research datasets, software and reports, through citation and impact tracking. The publications encourage new and more efficient research, new collaborations, and reuse by the public (e.g. for teaching and journalism). UP metapapers come in three flavours: Data papers highlight openly archived data with high reuse potential, and provide recognition for the producers of the data. Software papers help you to locate openly archived, reusable code relevant to your research, and provide a mechanism for citing its use. Research reports provide concise summaries of key developments in a field that the community do not otherwise have access to. - Deborah Fitchett
