What is a data note?
Data notes are a short peer-reviewed article type that concisely describe research data stored in a repository. They increase the discoverability and transparency of your research, helping to comply with funder mandates on data sharing and make data FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable).
Data notes do not include any analysis or conclusions but may be linked to a research article incorporating analysis of the published dataset, as well as the results and conclusions. They may also highlight standalone data sets stored in a repository.
