ASTRO Journals Data Sharing Policy and Recommended Best Practices

This article in Advances in Radiation Oncology highlights the importance of transparency, openness and reproducibility of data which are important characteristics in scientific publishing. While many researchers embrace these characteristics, it is yet to become common practice. In response, ASTRO journals committed to a Data Policy and aims to raise awareness of best practices through various communication mediums, including a CME credited self-assessment activity with the goal of encouraging early participation and adoption. Data sharing has become an increasingly important topic among societies, publishers, researchers, patient advocates and funders, especially as it pertains to data from clinical trials.
