JCB launched the JCB DataViewer in 2008 as the first browser-based application for viewing original, multi-dimensional image data (https://doi.org/10.1083/jcb.200811132). This application was built in conjunction with Glencoe Software using a data management engine based on the OMERO software developed by the Open Microscopy Environment. This application allowed JCB authors to present multidimensional image data as they were acquired, giving them the opportunity to share data that were not possible to share previously. The DataViewer was decommissioned in 2018 as the journal evolved to an all-encompassing archive policy towards original source data and as new data repositories that go beyond archiving data and allow investigators to make new connections between datasets, potentially driving discovery, emerged.
Data originally published in the JCB DataViewer has been moved BioStudies. Please note that while the majority of data were moved, some authors opted to remove their data completely.
