Publish data & software
Some elements of the research cycle deserve more attention than they usually get. Think data, software, materials and methods – what happens to these when your research project is finished?
You can get credit for all your hard work collecting research data, developing software, writing code and tweaking your methods by publishing brief, peer-reviewed articles in one of our four multidisciplinary, open access journals specialising in data, software, hardware, methods and protocols.
How does it work?
By publishing single elements of the research cycle, you can help other researchers easily find and cite new types of information to apply to their research and reproduce results, keeping the whole research cycle alive. A template-based article format means your work is easy to prepare and submit, and ensures the finished article complements your full research paper.

Mendeley Data is a open, free-to-use research data repository, which enables researchers to make their research data publicly available. Benefits of sharing research data include complying with funder mandates, enabling reuse by other researchers, and increasing reproducibility, transparency and trust of the original research.
Sharing Research Data
Research data forms the backbone of your research article and provides the foundation on which scientific, technical and medical knowledge is built. As a researcher, you are increasingly encouraged, or even mandated, to make your research data available, accessible, discoverable and usable.
