General services to publish data are not available and the necessary editorial process leading to quality assured and efficiently usable data requires resources to be quantified. At present, there is an imbalance between the capacities and functionality of existing data centres and data repositories and the global production of scientific data. Budgets of data centres generally cover a precise scope, mostly data production of the host institution. The WG will supply cost estimates and elaborate a business model to compensate for additional costs of publishing data in an open access environment.
