Data as a Scholarly Endeavor

In the last five years, Data only journals have started. They provide a publication venue for data sets. 
  • Journals that publish data sets as primary scholarship
  • Journals that post data as supplementary materials
Additionally, the National Science Foundation and the Office of Management and Budget mandated the sharing of data. Part of that is planning to share your data. 
  • Where will the data be kept?
  • Who’s responsible for the data?
  • How will others access the data?
