Data behind the Figure

The AAS Journals are committed to serving the needs of its authors and its readers. The new "Data behind the Figure" (DbF) option is our latest program to achieve these goals by making more information available in the paper in common format in an archived journal. For authors this means the data will be available for the long term and will facilitate further use of data, increasing the long term citations of the paper. For readers the data that was once difficult to extract from a figure image can now be on your desktop with one click. Note that DbF is not appropriate for all data, specifically extremely large data set larger than 100 MB or data that is already available online, e.g. NASA archives. In the latter case we have means of linking to most archived data via our data set keyword linking project.

When underlying data is available, its presence is indicated in the figure caption and can be obtained from the electronic edition. The data is provided in the FITS or MRT format. With one click the data is on your computer and ready to be manipulated with your favorite analysis package.

The first DbF paper was published in 2010 with more in 2011. You can view these papers and their data here:
