"Researchers in the education sciences value data sharing and that many either have shared or intend to share data. However, an objective look at the rate of data availability in peer-reviewed research journals paints a different picture." Thus we see a need for this publication (23 page MS-Word), which gives researchers in education background and advice on data sharing. It summarizes "curated list of existing guides to sharing research data," creating a table of "general steps to data sharing and curated resources." It then offers advice on where and when to share your data.It's worth noting that "Openly accessible data also supports pedagogy and democratizes participation in science by enabling students and early career researchers to pose research questions and perform secondary analyses on data they may not have time or resources to personally collect."
