Open data is data that can be freely used, re-used and redistributed by anyone - subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike.
Other than submitting your conference presentations, dissertations and theses, student projects, teaching materials, data sets, reports, images, video and audio files to DigitalCommons@TMC, another feature on this repository is the growing peer reviewed journals hosted on this site, submitted by faculty and staff from UT Health Houston, and Baylor College of Medicine.
Some of these journals hosted on this site include Journal of Shock and Hemodynamics (JoSH), Teaching in Clinics are currently accepting articles. The VAD journal started in 2015, is the longest running e-journal hosted on this repository.
To see all the peer reviewed journal on the DigitalComons@TMC repository, visit BROWSE JOURNALS AND PEER-REVIEWED SERIES.
Once you have your ejournal up and running, if you ever find the need to have Digital Object Identifier setup for your articles published on the DigitalCommons@TMC platform, we can also help you set that up to help you reach more audience if needed.
To meet the requirements:
Digital Commons will automatically register DOIs for newly published content on faculty journals. See more information at Digital Object Identifier. Contact us if you have any questions.
Want to have more folks reading your journal after it has been published? Consider registering your journal from BROWSE JOURNALS AND PEER-REVIEWED SERIES on Directory of Open Access Journals. The DOAJ index offers a voice to your journals, in any language or subject, increasing their visibility and ability to comply with best publishing practices - opening the door to discovery of research around the world.
To meet application requirements, the journal must be actively publishing scholarly research with at least 5 research articles annually with persistent object identifiers (DOIs) on the articles. Read more about the DOAJ Seal and see if your journal qualifies. Contact if you have any questions.
