About the organisation 

Nature Publishing Group (NPG) is committed to open science, seeking to facilitate transparent, open scientific communication through data services, collaboration tools, public accessibility and reuse.


To further these aims, NPG and its new publication Scientific Data are involved in a number of initiatives and seek to play an active role in the data community, such as through membership of CODATA. We believe open data is very important to the progress and future of scientific discovery.

New from NPG, Scientific Data is an open-access, peer-reviewed publication for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets. Our primary article-type, the Data Descriptor, is designed to make your data more discoverable, interpretable and reusable.
