Open Data Policies

Publishers make research data policies available at either the publisher or journal level. These policies range in their mandate, but most require authors to make all data necessary to replicate their study’s findings publicly available without restriction at the time of publication. When specific legal or ethical restrictions prohibit public sharing of a data set, authors must indicate how others may obtain access to the data. Often, when submitting a manuscript to the publisher, authors must provide a Data Availability Statement describing compliance with the data availability policy. If the article is accepted for publication, the Data Availability Statement will be published as part of the article.  CHORUS has created a Publisher Data Availability Policies Index.
