Scientific Data: A new publisher of Data

Nature.com is starting a new publication titled, Scientific Data. The goal is to help researchers publish and discover data. The publication content is called a Data Descriptor. It describes the data, explains the data collection methods, lists the columns, and states other essential information about the dataset.

Unfortunately, the site does not host any of the data. I think it will be interesting to watch how a site like this develops. The publication is currently accepting submissions.
