DATA SHARING POLICY
Scientific results are only as strong as they are reproducible, so being able to identify and use research data is vital to building knowledge. To help make all scientific data more transparent, we encourage the authors to state the availability of their data. With the data statement, authors can be transparent about the data they used in an article and make a statement about its availability together with their published article.
