AVAILABILITY OF DATA AND MATERIALS
The source of data and materials should be mentioned in the manuscript, in support of the findings. If the data source is not revealed, the authors need to clearly state the reasons. Authors who do not wish to share their data should clearly state that the data will not be shared, and give the reasons.
Archiving of Datasets
Authors may deposit their datasets openly to Zenodo Repository, in addition to their own or their institutional archives.
Zenodo - a repository which is funded by the European Commission, CERN, and OpenAIRE—features a Data for Policy community.
Data for Zenodo site is primarily being used to host Data for Policy for conference papers and posters. However, we also encourage authors, who are already submitting to Data & Policy, to use Zenodo for presenting content associated with their articles.
Additionally, Zenodo can be used as a repository to host data and other materials that are referred to in the Data Availability Statement. These may include:
- data management plans
- software documentation
- audio and video files
- reports, and
- technical notes
Moreover, authors who wish to cite any relevant materials could use the unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI) that Zenodo assigns to the uploaded content.
The statement relating to the data should be presented in the following format under a separate ‘Availability of Data and Materials’ section in the manuscript:
"The data supporting the findings of the article is available in the [repository name] at [URL], reference number [reference number]”.
