*Data need to be more than just available, they need to be discoverable and
understandable.* Iain Hrynaszkiewicz introduces Nature’s new published data
paper format, a Data Descriptor. Peer-review and curation of these data
papers will facilitate open access to knowledge and interdisciplinary
research, pushing the boundaries of discovery. Some of the most tangible
benefits of open data stem from social and interdisciplinary sciences as
these fields require effective cross-disciplinary communication.
