Open Data Button is here!

The Open Data Button has been launched in a beta release. This browser-based* application helps people find, request, and share research data with the click of a button. Following on from the Open Access Button, this experimental tool makes it easy to get at the data behind published research (even if it’s behind a paywall). If the data can’t be found online, the Button contacts the author and invites them to make it available via the Open Science Framework. Every request is tracked and the status made available, allowing researchers to see–and tell stories about–how their research is making an impact.
