GigaScience, a new type of journal from BioMed Central, is now accepting submissions, with the goal of addressing many of the issues surrounding “big-data”. An online, open-access, open-data journal, GigaScience publishes big-data studies from the entire spectrum of life and biomedical sciences. The journal’s publication format links standard manuscript publication with an extensive database that hosts all associated data and provides data analysis tools and cloud-computing resources.
This journal marks an exciting development for big-data, the sciences, and open-access/open-data! GigaScience is accessible from the following URL: http://www.gigasciencejournal.com/
