Data is a key research output, therefore sharing it presents a multitude of opportunities for research and researchers. The new policies aim to promote increased sharing of data to improve the robustness of the entire research process, supporting transparency, reproducibility, and replicability of results.
Data citation capabilities will be introduced, enabling researchers to get and give credit for their valuable data findings. Where authors share data, they will be required to include a data availability statement, which will improve the discoverability of their research. Our policies range from encouraging data sharing to making data open with a license, offering flexibility while ensuring the needs of different fields and disciplines are met.
A basic policy encouraging data sharing will be applied to all titles owned by Taylor & Francis, with an aim to move many journals to more progressive data sharing policies during 2018 following consultation with our partners.
