Over 600 Springer Nature journals commit to new data sharing policies

lterrat's bookmarks 2016-12-08

Summary:

"More than 600 journals across Nature Research, Springer, BioMed Central and Palgrave Macmillan have committed to encouraging good practice in the sharing and archiving and citation of research data by adopting new Springer Nature research data policies. The text of the policies has today been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY 4.0) license so that they can be re-used by the wider research community.

These easy-to-understand policies encourage the publication of more open and reproducible research, and aim to increase growth and innovation in research and data sharing. They improve services for authors, editors and peer reviewers by standardising policies and procedures, providing more consistent links between publications and data, guidelines and support. In addition, a dedicated Research Data Support Helpdesk for Springer Nature authors and editors has been created."
