The Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR); the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF); and GigaScience Press are announcing a new call for authors to submit and publish Data Release papers on vectors of human disease in a thematic series in GigaByte Journal. GigaScience Press partnering with GBIF are supported by TDR to release a special issue for publication of new datasets presenting biodiversity data for research on vectors of human diseases.
The article processing fee (normally $350) will be waived for 15 papers, provided that the publications are accepted and meet the above criteria.
The data papers submitted should describe datasets with the following criteria:
- Data has clear relevance for research on vectors of human vector-borne diseases
- Dataset contains more than 5,000 records that are new to GBIF.org in 2021/22 with highquality data and metadata
