Data availability statements are required by some publishers to indicate whether the data supporting your manuscript are publicly available for review and reuse. More and more frequently, statements that indicate to "Contact the author for data access" are disallowed; we recommend checking with your editor/publisher to confirm what is acceptable.

For an example public data availability statement, see the "Guidelines for Citing Published Data" section at the bottom of our Data Publishing & Discovery page.  

If you need further assistance, including assistance in making manuscript-related data publicly available to support your data availability statement, contact us
