You will be able to download the Open Data Button on Chrome, and later on Firefox. When you need the data supporting a paper (even if it's behind a paywall), push the Button. If the data has already been made available through the Open Data Button, we'll give you a link. If it hasn't, youâll be able to start a request for the data. Eventually, we want to search a variety of other sources for it - but can't yet (read on, we need your help with that).Open Access Button
The request will be sent to the author. We know sharing data can be hard and there's sometimes good reasons not to. The author will be able to respond to it by saying how long it'll take to share the data - or if they can't. If the data is already available, the author can simply share a URL to the dataset. If it isn't, they can attach files to a response for us to make available. Files shared with us will be deposited in the Open Science Framework for identification and archiving. The Open Science Framework supports data sharing for all disciplines. As much metadata as possible will be obtained from the paper, the rest we'll ask the author for.
