How to Share Research Data to Meet Funder and Journal Requirements

If you are funded by the NIH, HHMI, or Gates Foundation, or plan to publish in PLOS, PNAS, Science or Nature it is very likely that you will be asked to make your research data publicly available. This is part of a global effort to make research results more transparent, reproducible, and equitable. But what data do you share and how exactly should you share it? The goal of this mini workshop is to get you up to speed with these new requirements and help you work reproducible and painless data sharing into your research process.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop learners will be able to:

  • Describe data sharing policies and motivations
  • Identify relevant data and documentation for sharing
  • Select an appropriate place to share their data
  • Prepare data for sharing
  • Plan for ethical and reproducible data sharing

This will be an online class via Zoom conferencing. The zoom link will be sent to registered attendees.
