Special Issue "Seismic Data – Research and Impact "
A special issue of Data (ISSN 2306-5729).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019.
Seismic data are produced or collected by geophysical scientists in different ways to study the Earth’s environmental problems. Although online seismic data are accessible across the globe, there is a lack of a unique platform that enables scientists to share the data produced locally. Such a lack of scientific data communication has limited researchers to share datasets in a professional and credible manner. A large portion of innovative and novel ideas cannot be realized due to the unavailability of data, and scientific findings cannot be retested and verified, because data have been always kept as “dark-stored data”.
Owing to the significant efforts to support reproducible research and credible scientific data, researchers may publish their data in the scientific media and publicize their data collection and data processing efforts. There are two groups of seismic data that are encouraged to be shared with other scholars: (1) original seismic data, which have been generated from scratch, and (2) secondary data produced as outcome of the initial data processing. In recent years, scientific communities have attempted to make their data transparent, so that the behind-the-scenes data is also shared and published.
The editor is willing to invite you to submit articles addressing the process of seismological data collection, acquisition, processing, and management, so that these data will be (re)used by other scholars and add value to the preliminary published results from them. Seismic waveforms and hypocentral datasets include, but are not limited to, data and methods.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Data is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
