Today is the first day of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in New Orleans, continuing through December 15, and if you are attending the meeting, you’ll see our open access journal Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene featured at the DataONE/DataCite booth #1820, alongside friends from Dash. We are especially pleased to appear alongside these organizations this year, as Elementa recently announced a partnership with Dash, the data publication platform from the University of California Curation Center (UC3), part of the California Digital Library, which allows Elementa authors to publish their data at UC Press Dash for free. Head over to booth #1820 to learn more about Dash’s data repository service for Elementa authors!
Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene is a trans-disciplinary, open-access journal with the ultimate objective of accelerating scientific solutions to the challenges presented by this era of human impact. Because such solutions will require collaboration among all research disciplines, and among academics, practitioners, and policymakers, the journal’s trans-disciplinary nature is essential. As such, the journal is structured into six distinct knowledge domains, and gives authors the opportunity to publish in one or multiple domains, helping them to present their research and commentary to interested readers from disciplines related to their own.
Elementa’s mission is Open Science for Public Good, and we believe that publishing scientific research that fulfills this mission is more vital than ever. So throughout #AGU17 this week, we’ll be highlighting Elementa’s high usage, download, impact, and citation metrics, sharing the top 5 most-read articles from each of the six domains (stay tuned for the post tomorrow featuring Atmospheric Science and Ocean Science!).
In the meantime, be sure to check out a recent blog post with key article- and journal-level metrics across the whole journal, demonstrating how Elementa’s open, accessible research has a wide reach and impact across a global audience.
