Journal Policy Last policy updated Requirements Notes Nature Availability of data Nature has specific and well documented recommendations for different types of data, materials, and computer code.
PLoS Editorial and Publishing Policies Data associated with publications must be publically available with rare exceptions. Each PLoS journal has its own more specific set of guidelines and policies. These are accessible from the main policy link. Science Data Deposition and Availability of Data Large data must be deposited in a database with identifier prior to publication and all data and materials must be available to public after publication.
PNAS Materials and Data Availability Authors required to make data, protocols and materials available to researchers and disclose where restrictions apply. Under the Materials and Data Availability section on the editorial policies page there are type-specific data policies listed in addition to the general data sharing policy.
Unstructured repositories, such as Figshare and Dryad , are suitable alternatives. Datasets can also be made available as Supplementary material files, which will be freely accessible on the Brain website upon publication. If data files cannot be deposited in an accessible repository, authors must make the data available to editors and peer reviewers if requested.
After publication, authors must likewise arrange to make the data available to any reader directly upon reasonable request. Source code for any specialized, in-house scripts or programs, that are necessary for the reproduction of results, must be deposited in a public repository e. GitHub , or uploaded as Supplementary material. Ideally, data should be deposited prior to submission so that during submission you can provide an accurate data availability statement, and the data repository persistent identifier, if applicable.
Where datasets have a persistent identifier, or DOI, this should be cited in both the text and the reference section. The data availability statement should provide information on where and under what conditions the data directly supporting the publication can be accessed.
Example data availability statement templates:. We will allow exceptions where data sharing violates protection of human subjects or other valid subject privacy concerns.

The Nature family of journals, including Nature Methods, share a number of common policies including the policy documented here on data availability and materials. Nature Publishing Group policy on data and material availability is based on the principle that all data should be freely available to the research community. This policy describes the reporting requirements as well as the data, material and computer code availability.
The policy also describes the requirements for experimental protocols and clinical trials. This record is in need of a maintainer. If you login, you'll be able to claim this record.
Availability of data, materials, code and protocols. An inherent principle of publication is that others should be able to replicate and build upon the authors'. Guidance for authors and editors Data availability statements provide a statement about where data supporting the results reported in a published. ASM asks authors to assert this in a “Data availability” paragraph, which should appear at the end of the Materials and Methods section (or at the end of the text) .
