Do you want to publish in a journal with a data availability policy? Does your funder require you to share or archive your data? Do you want to share your data, but are unsure how to get started? This workshop will help you make informed decisions about data sharing. We will provide an overview of data sharing requirements and policies from funding agencies, publishers, and others. Then we will describe common options for sharing your data, from completely open to controlled use agreements, and talk about support at IUPUI. We will also talk about the benefits of data sharing and citation for promotion & tenure, seeking funding, and awards.
