In this presentation for the 2018 Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association, Data Publishing Policy Lead Fiona Murphy fdescribes some publisher efforts to encourage stewardship of data sets and gives an overview of an ongoing project between the Belmont Forum to develop a Data Accessibility Statement aligned with the FAIR principles of data management.  

The Data Accessibility Statement (DAS) links scientific publishing to the research data produced by the project. The DAS is included as part of a journal article and articulates which data underlie a paper, where the data are available and under what conditions they can be accessed. By supporting data citation, the DAS also provides opportunities to credit the data collectors and curators.
