Data Access statement

All publications arising from publicly-funded research require a ‘data access statement’ that describes where data (directly supporting the publication) can be found and under what conditions they can be accessed.

The expectation could be satisfied by citing such data in the published research and including in such citations direct links to the data or to supporting documentation that describes the data in detail, how it may be accessed and any constraints that may apply. It is important that any such links are persistent URLs such as DOIs.

For guidance on writing a statement in your publications see the helpful guide: 'Writing a data access statement' from University of Bath.
