Data sharing

What is it about?

We show several examples of sharing data in scientific publications using the supporting information files. We illustrate how to extract data from manuscripts published this way, and how to reuse the data for new purposes.

Why is it important?

Our work shows a way to integrate data sharing with manuscript preparation. This is a crucial development because it reduces the work required to prepare your manuscript.

The ability to reproduce analysis from published papers requires access to the data used, and the methods of analysis. We show in this work that the data and code for analysis can be embedded in a reusable way into the supporting information files of a manuscript. This enables others to more rapidly use our work to build on it.
