KULA: knowledge creation, dissemination, and preservation studies
KULA derives its name from the Sanskrit word meaning “community.” Kula is also a reference to the Pacific Rim Terrane called the “Kula Plate” from which Vancouver Island, Canada was formed millions of years ago and is where KULA is based at the University Libraries of the University of Victoria.
DataCite - International Citation Initiative e.V.
To achieve our goals, the journal has a novel publication format: one that links standard manuscript publication with an extensive database that hosts all associated data and provides data analysis tools and cloud-computing resources. GigaDB provides a direct link between the published manuscript and the relevant supporting data. We have also built GigaGalaxy, a Galaxy-based data analysis platform to host computational methods and workflows, maximizing use of the data, tools and workflows in our papers in a more accessible and reproducible environment.
Our scope covers not just 'omic' type data and the fields of high-throughput biology currently serviced by large public repositories, but also the growing range of more difficult-to-access data, such as imaging, neuroscience, ecology, cohort data, systems biology and other new types of large-scale shareable data.
