For those of you that haven't heard of BMC Research Notes
(http://www.biomedcentral.com/bmcresnotes/), it is one of the newer
journals in the BMC-series.

BMC Research Notes is an open access journal publishing scientifically
sound research across all fields of biology and medicine, enabling
authors to publish updates to previous research, software tools and
databases, data sets, small-scale clinical studies, and reports of
confirmatory or 'negative' results.

A key objective with BMC Research Notes is to ensure that associated
data sets are published in standard, reusable formats whenever possible.
Data sets published in the journal will be made publicly accessible in a
way that makes them searchable and easily harvested for reuse. We are
keen, therefore, to support researchers who have a special interest in
data format standardization and we are aiming to develop more
comprehensive data standardisation information for our authors and
readers to enable us to present data in a standardised and mineable way.
If you have any interest in this area of work or any information that
you feel would be of use, please get in touch.  

Best wishes,

Via Bill Hooker, this announcement from BMC on developing standards for
presenting raw data in publications is very promising.
