"Nature Climate Change encourages authors of submitted manuscripts to archive their data in accessible, permanent public databases and to provide the editors with full citation details so that a link to the data can be included in the paper in the event of publication. We recognize that this can generate extra work for authors and that some will fear that other researchers will make use of such data in their own publications, even if the source of those data is properly acknowledged. But it is increasingly evident that the benefits of data deposition to the research community greatly outweigh the costs (see Nature Clim. Change 1, 10–12;2011). With moves afoot to make primary scientific data sets citable in their own right (see for example www.datacite.org), perceived loss of credit for those who generated the data in the first place should soon be a thing of the past."
