Data Sharing

For sharing research data, this journal using Harvard dataverse to preserve research data, if you intend to preserve and sharing your research data for greater impact on global knowledge please pay attention on this instruction:

a. Definition of data that must be shared :

A "minimal dataset" can be defined to consist of the dataset used to reach the conclusions drawn in the manuscript with related metadata and methods, and any additional data required to replicate the reported study findings in their entirety. Include sufficient information for a researcher to understand data, and any citations to data from which the replication set is derived. Core descriptive data, methods, and study results should be included within the main paper, regardless of data deposition. Authors who have datasets too large for sharing via repositories or uploaded files should contact Rechtsidee for advice. (Adapted from PLOS' Data Policy)

b. Guidance on sharing datasets that derive from work involving human participants

Rechtsidee recognizes that there are cases where for reasons of privacy, national security and commercial confidentiality the full data cannot be made openly available. In such cases researchers should share their data analysis under the least restrictive terms consistent with legal requirements, and abiding by the research ethics and guidelines of their community. This should include opening up non-sensitive data, summary data, metadata and code; and facilitating access if the owner of the original data grants other researchers permission to use the data. (Adapted from OKF's Open Economics Principles)

c. Guidance on Data Citation

If your research data is deposited at the same time as your manuscript using OJS' article submission form then a Data Citation will automatically be generated by the Harvard Dataverse. However, if your research data is already in a repository then here is the suggested Data Citation format to include when you submit your manuscript:

Author(s), Year, Dataset Title, Global Persistent Identifier, Data Repository or Archive, version and subset.

For more information on Data Citation best practices please review Force11's Data Citation Principles.
