New open access journal ing.grid for data management in engineering sciences

Projects, International, Research |

In cooperation with the Chair of Aerodynamics and Fluid Mechanics of the TUM School of Engineering and Design, the new journal ing.grid on data management in engineering was created. For the first time, the journal offers a platform to best practices in generating, processing and curating research data. The novel hybrid open peer review process encourages active scientific discussion and community engagement.

"The new journal ing.grid fills a gap in engineering identified by the NFDI4Ing consortium. At last, data management topics can be placed according to fair principles: findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. Through the peer-review process, we achieve a high quality of contributions," said Prof. Christian Stemmer, co-spokesperson of the NFDI4Ing consortium and task lead DORIS large data on HPC as well as a topical editor of the journal, at the launch of ing.grid.

The journal covers seven core topics:

  •     Data Literacy
  •     Data Infrastructure
  •     Data Governance (control over data)
  •     Data Economics
  •     Data Ethics
  •     Data Sets
  •     Data Management Software

The call for papers is currently underway for the first issue, which will be published in mid-2023, providing a new, low-threshold publication opportunity for many ED scientists. The journal is open to submissions from the engineering community, e.g., manuscripts, tutorials, datasets, interfaces, or software.
