Data and reproducibility: The role of research institutions

(7 February 2018) To achieve greater transparency, replicability, and trust in scientific findings, research authors are increasingly expected to enhance textual reporting by providing associated data and materials. This growing expectation has focused attention towards the appropriate handling of research data. Of particular note are the topics highlighted on COPE’s website on Core Practice in Data and Reproducibility:

Open data access
Data quality review
Data and reproducibility
Data ownership and authorship
Data misappropriation
Data anonymity
Data sharing policies and protections
Data repositories and archiving
Data Security, Privacy, and Embargoes

COPE has the story.
