Thanks to Between the Poles I learned about the new SpringerOpen journal named ‘Open Geospatial Data, Software and Standards’. Its content is published under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY).
The aims and scope: “Open Geospatial Data, Software and Standards provides an advanced forum for the science and technology of open data, crowdsourced information, and sensor web through the publication of reviews and regular research papers. The journal publishes articles that address issues related, but not limited to, the analysis and processing of open geo-data, standardization and interoperability of open geo-data and services, as well as applications based on open geo-data. The journal is also meant to be a space for theories, methods and applications related to crowdsourcing, volunteered geographic information, as well as Sensor Web and related topics.”
