How do I publish data?
There are several ways to publish data, and we recommend depositing data into a dedicated repository or database. Doing this helps make the data discoverable and persistently available. Other common methods include providing supplemental files along with a journal article and publishing dedicated data papers. Simply posting data on personal website is not recommended.
