Springer Nature Implements Unified Data Policy Across All Journals and Books
Springer Nature announced that it “has taken a further step forwards in its commitment to open science by requiring mandatory data availability statements (DAS) across its journals portfolio, and introducing its first unified data policy across the books portfolio.”
The company is using “DAS as standard for its journal portfolio to promote greater transparency and reproducibility. Adopting a unified policy for books for the first time, is a further exciting step towards encouraging open research practices across all publications and driving forward open science for all.” The policy will be rolled out across journals progressively.
Springer Nature adds, “Recognising the different journey that books are on in the move to open science—the single books policy will strongly encourage data sharing, and the use of repositories, but DAS will not be mandatory.”
