IOP Publishing is trialing a new data policy on three of its journals to encourage and support authors to make the data underpinning their article more accessible.
The trial will begin in July on the journals Environmental Research Letters, Journal of Physics: Complexity, and Machine Learning: Science and Technology, and will be extended to five additional IOP Publishing journals after three months.
The policy requires authors to include a data availability statement with their article, indicating whether data is accessible and, if so, where can it be found and under what licensing terms. The policy also strongly encourages authors to share their data.
