The NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) operated by 
CIESIN has begun accepting submissions of scientific data related to 
human-environment interactions that are of high utility to the human 
dimensions research and applications communities. In light of increased 
recognition of the importance of open access to research data by 
universities, scientific publishers, funding organizations, and other 
organizations, SEDAC seeks to increase the accessibility and utilization 
of important global- or regional-scale spatial data, especially those 
derived from or complementary to remote sensing data from NASA or other 
sources. SEDAC will also consider other types of data that meet its 
acquisition criteria. Priority topics of interest for data acquisition 
and dissemination include administrative boundaries and other reference 
layers, population dynamics, human settlements and infrastructure, land 
use/land cover change, economic development, environmental health, and 
policy-relevant environmental and sustainable development indicators.

Submission of candidate data sets is a two-step process. In the first 
step, SEDAC requests basic information on the data (e.g., nature of the 
data set and its primary purpose) that will help evaluate suitability 
for SEDAC archiving and dissemination. If the data appear appropriate, a 
copy of the data will be requested along with additional information for 
review by the SEDAC User Working Group (UWG). If feasible and 
appropriate, SEDAC will work with data authors and journal publishers to 
coordinate data release with publication of a peer-reviewed article. 
SEDAC will also consider valuable older data sets that may be at risk of 
loss if not properly archived, as well as national or sub-national data 
for key countries or regions, on a case-by-case basis.
