|Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) fundamentally rely on geospatial data sets by supporting their management, discovery, access, view and processing. The International Journal of Spatial Data Infrastructures Research (IJSDIR) wants to promote a richer understanding of data sets themselves through short articles which should provide:

- authors with the opportunity to have their data peer-reviewed and readily referenced; and
- publishers with examples of how (geospatial) data is research output worth reviewing and sharing.
