Scientific Data is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by the Nature Publishing Group since 2014.[1] It focuses on descriptions of data sets relevant to the natural sciences, which are provided as machine readable data, complemented with a human oriented narrative. The journal was not the first to publish data papers, but is one of few journals that purely publish data papers.[2][3] The journal is abstracted and indexed by Index Medicus/MEDLINE/PubMed.[4]
