Dear all,

I would like to draw your attention to a recent blog post at Open Economics
about data policies of Economic journals, written by Sven Vlaeminck from
EDaWaX (European Data Watch Extended):

The piece examines 141 economics journals to identify 29, which have a data
availability policy - 10 of which used the same or a slightly modified
version of the policy implemented by the American Economic Review (AER).
The criteria for evaluating data availability policies includes e.g. being
mandatory, pledging authors to provide datasets, code of computation,
metadata and used programs, assuring that the data is provided prior to the
publication, etc. Read the whole post for all the results of the survey.

You can also access the raw data at the Datahub: h
<http://datahub.io/en/dataset/edawax-wp2> (for
English language users: when importing in a spreadsheet editor - the csv
files are separated with ";")

The date policies of Economic journals is a salient topic, which would be
also addressed in the Open Economics international workshop next week:
http://openeconomics.net/workshop-dec-2012/, where Sven Vlaeminck will
present on the panel "Open Data in Economics – Reasons, Examples,
Potential”, which would examine examples of open data in economics and its
potential benefits.
