This dataset underpins research undertaken by the Data Publishing team at Springer Nature which analysed the impact of Data Availability Statements on Nature journal editors, and how researchers choose to share their data.

Mandatory Data Availability Statements were introduced by Nature journals in 2016 which require researchers to state how their data can be accessed.

The dataset comprises of a single Excel file, which include the journal title, unique ID for each published article, subject areas, and the estimated time required to include a Data Availability Statement as reported by the journals' editorial staff. The median time per journal is also calculated.

The full text of the Data Availability statement is included, and the statements are coded according to the data sharing method described.

This dataset supports a paper that has been peer reviewed and accepted for presentation at the International Digital Curation Conference 2018. The paper has been submitted to the International Journal of Digital Curation. At the time of dataset release the full paper is available as a preprint in BioRxiv.
