PLOS Tests Accessible Data Feature to Propel Open Science Forward

PLOS “is testing a new experimental open science feature intended to promote data sharing and reuse across the PLOS journal portfolio. A subset of PLOS articles that link to shared research data in a repository will now display a prominent visual cue designed to help researchers find accessible data.”

Iain Hrynaszkiewicz, director of open research solutions at PLOS, says the Wellcome Trust is providing support to help the organization experiment “with solutions designed to increase sharing and discovery of research data that also save researchers time.”

The first solution is an Accessible Data feature that is “deployed on articles that link to research data in one of several repositories. The feature will appear on more than 3,000 PLOS articles. … It will also appear on newly published articles that qualify for the feature during the experiment, which is expected to run until the end of 2022.” If this experiment is successful, the feature will be added to more repositories.

For more information, read the press release.
