  • Highly diverse and heterogenous in structure
  • In most cases (95 %?) published as separate data files with poor metadata descriptions
  • Well established standards for some types of data exist: DarwinCore for occurrence (species-by-locality data), Phylogenetic (Nexus) data and genome data (GenBank, Barcode of Life)
  • Majority of published data not easily discoverable and citable, that means hardly usable
  • Publishing of highly-structured marked up text is also a form of data publishing
