Just published your Research Article?
Why stop there?
Effective data sharing extends beyond simply depositing your dataset in a repository. At F1000Research, we believe that data should be shared in a discoverable, useable and reproducible way.
Enter: Data Notes.
Data Notes are short descriptions of a dataset indicating why and how the data was collected. Unlike a traditional Research Article, Data Notes do not include any analyses or conclusions. Rather, they cover the following:
Dataset rationale, protocol, and validation details
Information about any limitations of the dataset
Information on where and how to access the dataset, as part of a Data Availability Statement
Reference to the dataset using a formal data citation
Data Notes are suitable for all kinds of data no matter the subject or the size of the dataset. Furthermore, as with any F1000Research article, Data Notes are ‘living’, meaning you can come back and update your article with new findings at any time.
