*Background*: This Special Issue aims to explore *how, why, *and *to what
end *scientists in developing countries, and particularly those in
sub-Sahara Africa, share and re-use data, and whether these activities
differ from the priorities, practices, and policies associated with
research in other conditions. We seek to attract papers that capture the
challenges of conducting research in low-resourced environments and the
innovative ways in which scientists overcome these challenges and
produce/disseminate/use data (whether in digital or other formats).  We
would be happy to discuss possible contributions with prospective authors
over email.

*Venue:* The *Data Science Journal *is produced by CODATA (the Committee on
Data for Science and Technology), an interdisciplinary Scientific Committee
of the International Council for Science overseeing data handling and
data-intensive research across disciplines and countries around the world.
The *Data Science Journal* has a range of submission types, including
standard articles (up to 8,000 words).  See
http://datascience.codata.org/about/submissions/ for more details. *Data
Science Journal* speaks to a range of audiences, including researchers
across the physical, life and social sciences, and provides inexpensive
Open Access publication options.

*Provisional Timetable:*
