National Archives, London
http://nationalarchives.gov.uk/

The National Archives has a range of different data sources and are keen to support initiatives that can broaden access to their data. Much of the National Archives digitised material is available via its catalogue, but discussion will be required to allow for in depth analysis. It may be preferable for scholars to work with specific collections, that have full catalogue entries or text that is searchable via OCR. This could include: a) One million probate copies of wills from the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 1384-1858, accessible Documents Online’s own search engine http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/wills.asp; b) MH12: Southwell Union Workhouse Correspondence 1834-1871, 11 volumes, fully catalogued, accessible both via our own electronic catalogue, or via the Documents Online search engine http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/workhouse.asp; and c) 500,000 Cabinet Office papers 1915-1977: full text searchable via OCR, http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/cabinetpapers/.

Atmosphere
http://www.mdpi.com/journal/atmosphere/

Atmosphere is an international and cross-disciplinary scholarly journal of scientific studies related to the atmosphere. It publishes reviews, regular research papers, communications and short notes, and there is no restriction on the length of the papers. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research in as much detail as possible. Full experimental and/or methodical details must be provided for research articles. There are, in addition, unique features of this journal:

* manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas will be particularly welcomed
* computed data or files regarding the full details of the experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material
* manuscripts concerning summaries and surveys on research cooperation and projects (that are founded by national governments or others) provide information for a broad field of users.

Subject Areas:

* atmospheric sciences
* atmospheric physics and chemistry
* air
* meteorology
* environmental sciences

Smithsonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)
http://ads.harvard.edu/

The Smithsonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is a Digital Library portal for researchers in Astronomy and Physics, currently being developed by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under a NASA grant. The ADS maintains three bibliographic databases containing more than 7.5 million bibliographic records covering the scholarly literature in Astronomy and Physics. For each bibliographic record in its database, the ADS maintains a list of links to relevant resources, including: a) Location of the fulltext article via DOI and/or OpenURL links; b) List of works referenced in the original article (references), given in the form of either a list of ADS records or as a link to the publisher’s reference list; c) List of works that cite the record in question (citations or “forward links”), given in the form of a list of records that ADS was able successfully identify; and d) Readership statistics and co-readership-based user recommendations. The ADS also maintains an archive of the historical content of all the astronomical publications. The contents of the archive consist of 500,000 articles, corresponding to over 3.5 million scanned pages, which have been OCRed and which are searchable through the ADS fulltext query search form. This will be added to Data Mining Resources Subject Tracer™. This has been added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR)
http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/

The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), the world’s largest repository of digital social science data, provides leadership and training in data access, curation, and methods of analysis for a diverse and expanding social science research community. The ICPSR repository spans the behavioral and social sciences and includes data on sociology, political science, demography, economics, history, criminal justice, gerontology, public health, education, criminal justice, gerontology, substance abuse, international relations, and much more. ICPSR’s Summer Program in Quantitative Methods is internationally recognized as the premier program for training in the methodology of social science research. ICPSR’s membership includes over 650 educational and research institutions around the world. ICPSR member institutions pay annual dues that entitle faculty, staff, and students to the full range of data resources and services provided by ICPSR, but many of the ICPSR data holdings are freely available to anyone. ICPSR content takes the form of numeric data files and associated PDF technical documentation (over 500,000 discrete files comprising over 7000 studies) that may be analyzed using statistical software packages or, in some cases, online analysis software. Each study in the holdings has a corresponding descriptive metadata record. Data in the repository are linked to related publications in the research literature via a Bibliography of over 45,000 entries. Similarly, citations in the Bibliography are linked to the data that generated the research findings. Full text is available for many publications in the Bibliography. ICPSR content provides a rich resource for data mining. This will be added to Data Mining Resources Subject Tracer™. This has been added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
