Preserving and sharing your data and code

There are some important considerations when sharing your data and code for other researchers to access.

Secondary data accessed through data archives should not be shared openly unless you have permission from the study team or data archive to do so.

This is because each user of those data must register with the data archive to sign a data use agreement before they are permitted access.

If you do not have permission to openly share the secondary data you are using, it is still good practice to follow open science principles and share the code/syntax that you used to clean the data and produce the analysis for a certain paper or project.
