Glencoe Software Announces Extensive Design, Usability and Data DOI Upgrades for The Journal of Cell Biology's JCB DataViewer.

SEATTLE, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Glencoe Software, The Journal of Cell Biology (JCB), and The Rockefeller University are pleased to announce their next enhancements to the JCB DataViewer, the world's first system for presentation, sharing and archiving published scientific image data. The JCB DataViewer archives data for authors and makes them available for query and re-use by other scientists. In this update, Glencoe Software's team has completely re-worked the design and layout of the JCB DataViewer, to improve the access to and use of complex multi-dimensional image datasets associated with papers published in JCB. In addition, all JCB DataViewer datasets have an associated DOI, the standard unique identifier used to identify published scientific information. This new version of the JCB DataViewer provides an improved workflow for users, streamlined upload for authors, and, most importantly, improved presentation of large, complex datasets from high content screening (HCS) and large tiled arrays. Publication of these data is critical for the scientific community. Improving the workflow and user experience and adding unique identifiers help to ensure productive re-use of these unique data.

First released in December 2008, the JCB DataViewer (http://jcb-dataviewer.rupress.org) has been under continuous development to support new data types and to provide new functionality for its users.  The JCB DataViewer currently contains original image data associated with 288 manuscripts published in JCB, and the image data submission rate by authors is steadily increasing. Improved, stream-lined upload of and access to data should substantially increase the amount of data hosted and the use of those data within the JCB DataViewer. Both Glencoe Software, Inc., and JCB welcome and are prepared for the growth of this resource. Liz Williams, Executive Editor of JCB, said, "We are proud of the JCB DataViewer's new look and think it is an important step forward that all JCB DataViewer datasets now are assigned unique DOIs.  These updates will make these data even more accessible to the scientific community." Mike Rossner, Director of The Rockefeller University Press, added, "This update to the JCB DataViewer is part of our ongoing development of this critical resource for JCB authors and readers."

The JCB DataViewer is based on open source software built by the Open Microscopy Environment (OME; http://openmicroscopy.org). Founded in 2000, OME builds and releases specifications and software tools for scientific image data, and its tools are used throughout the academic and commercial communities. Glencoe Software, Inc. has used OME's resources to build the JCB DataViewer and is a proud member of the OME Consortium.

Jason Swedlow, President of Glencoe Software, Inc., and co-founder of OME, said, "OME and Glencoe Software are excited to be a part of this important development and milestone in scientific publishing.  The use of modern design and user experience principles to enhance the JCB DataViewer is an example of our commitment to develop the most useful and usable software for image data management, sharing, and publication."

Glencoe Software, Inc., provides commercial access to and customization of OME resources. With increasing proliferation and complexity of research image datasets and the need for secure sharing, analysis, and visualization, Glencoe Software is well placed to deliver secure, scalable solutions based on an open-source, community-driven foundation. www.glencoesoftware.com

The JCB DataViewer hosts image data associated with articles published in The Journal of Cell Biology.  JCB is published by The Rockefeller University Press, which also publishes The Journal of Experimental Medicine and The Journal of General Physiology. All editorial decisions on manuscripts submitted to the Press journals are made by active scientists in conjunction with in-house scientific editors. All published content is available for free six months after publication. Authors retain copyright to their publications, and third parties may reuse the content under a Creative Commons license.
