Paving the Way to Open Data
and 3 collaborators
It is easy to argue that open data is critical to enabling faster and more effective research discovery. In this article we describe the approach we have taken at Wiley to support open data and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) data with the implementation of four data policies: “Encourages”, “Expects”, “Mandates” and “Mandates and Peer Reviews Data.” We describe the rationale for these policies and levels of adoption so far. In the coming months we plan to measure and monitor the implementation of these policies via the publication of data availability statements and data citations. With this information, we’ll be able to celebrate adoption of data-sharing practices by the research communities we work with and serve, and we hope to showcase researchers from those communities leading in open research.
