The Taylor & Francis Group has introduced their Books Data Sharing Policy which, from April 2021, will encourage authors of all new Routledge and CRC Press books and chapters to share and make data available according to FAIR principles. This includes ensuring it does not violate protection of human subjects or other valid subject privacy concerns. Authors are further encouraged to cite data and include a data availability statement in their publication.
This is in line with Taylor & Francis Group’s tiered journal data policies and will enable us to strengthen the commitment to open research over time. Taylor & Francis Group is the first publisher to set a Data Policy across all new books content. As funders increasingly make data sharing a requirement, this is an important step to support authors in making their work more discoverable and impactful, and to ensure they get all appropriate credit for their work.
Taylor & Francis Group has also been rolling out data sharing policies across journals since 2018.Click here to read the original press release.
