Open data publishing and sharing
SWS Society strictly follow the Panton’s Principles and FAIR Data Principles – “Science is based on building on, reusing and openly criticizing the published body of scientific knowledge. For science to effectively function, and for society to reap the full benefits from scientific endeavors, it is crucial that science data be made open…”.
Data can be published in various ways, such as preservation in data repositories linked to the respective paper or as data files or packages supplementary to the paper. Datasets should be deposited in an appropriate, trusted repository and the associated identifier (URL or DOI) of the dataset(s) must be included in the data resources section of the article. Reference(s) to datasets should also be included in the reference list of the article with DOIs (where available). Where no discipline-specific data repository exists authors should deposit their datasets in a general repository such as, for example Zenodo or others.
