2017.10 | Are we ready for sharing data in public repositories?
More and more journals are now inviting authors to deposit their data to data repositories as part of the manuscript submission process (see for instance the editorial and policy of Nature on this respect and the interesting story of the editor in chief of the Journal of Geophysical Research).
In this line, Mendeley has recently launched Mendeley Data, a cloud-based repository to store scientific data and ensuring it is easy to access and cite… Interested? take a look to their website: https://data.mendeley.com/, and feel free to contribute with your data 🙂
Editorials are clearly aligned with this aim, and Elsevier has recently become a signatory to Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) guidelines in order to gain transparency, open sharing, and reproducibility, as recently claimed here.
