Understanding our data sharing policies
Sharing your data
Research data can take many forms but is essentially the underlying evidence upon which the claims made in your publication rely.
Sharing these data publicly helps to maximize the discoverability and impact of your research. It also improves the robustness of the research process, supporting validation, research transparency, reproducibility and replicability of results.
Some funders and publishers now make data sharing a requirement and it’s become increasingly commonplace for some subject areas to make data available to everyone.
Taylor & Francis Group data sharing policies
Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals
Taylor & Francis offers a suite of standardized data sharing policies. When submitting your article, please check the Instructions for Authors for the journal you are submitting to, to find out what data policy applies.
You should also check whether your funder has a data sharing policy. If the policy for your funder and the journal differ, you’ll need to follow the more progressive policy, i.e. the policy that encourages a greater level of data sharing.
The F1000Research open science platform has an open data policy. Every article should include citations to repositories that host the data underlying results, together with details of any software used to process these results. You can find out more about F1000Research’s policies around data management in their data guidelines.
Routledge and CRC Press books
Our books data sharing policy encourages authors of all new books and chapters to share and make data available according to FAIR principles. Authors are further encouraged to cite data and include a data availability statement in their publication.
