What is a data note?

Data notes concisely describe your research data to increase the visibility and transparency of your research, and are peer-reviewed to support the reuse of valuable research data. 

Data notes do not include any analyses or conclusions but may be linked to a traditional Research Article reporting analysis of the published dataset, as well as the results and conclusions. Data notes should include:

  • 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 citation
  • Where applicable, cite and summarize any previous publications that use the data presented

Maximize the potential of your research and submit your data note today.
