Data availability reporting

Helping institutions understand how researchers are sharing their data

Does your institution or library want to understand more about how researchers are sharing data?

Our data availability reporting service is here to help. We can provide expertly curated and easy-to-understand information on how researchers at your organisation are sharing data associated with articles published in Springer Nature journals.

The report includes two main components:

  • a summary document including graphs of key figures, tables and an executive summary
  • the underlying data file - so institutions can conduct their own analyses and populate institutional data catalogues

Our service aims to support institutions in understanding and implementing funding agencies’ research data policies, of which there are now more than 80 worldwide. The report includes rich information produced using customised searches of the literature and associated metadata, alongside editorial expertise from Springer Nature’s Research Data team.
