Share Your Data and Code

Increase the impact of your work. Share your data and code for others to view, build upon, and reuse. 

Benefits to sharing your data and code include:

Data

IEEE DataPort™ is an online data repository of datasets and data analysis tools. The repository accepts all types of datasets up to 2TB and provides a DOI for easy citation. IEEE DataPort is currently available for free with coupon code Dataport1. Papers in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library with linked data in IEEE DataPort will have a Code & Datasets tab where readers can link to the dataset.

IEEE also recommends figshare, Zenodo, and Dryad as alternative data repositories.

Code

Code Ocean is a cloud-based computational reproducibility platform that allows code to be stored, shared, and run in the cloud. Anyone can run code posted to Code Ocean, modify it, and test the modifications, without changing the original code. 

When uploading to Code Ocean, you will be asked to create a “compute capsule”. The compute capsule creates a home for the code to live in and is the key to having your code work for everyone who runs it from Code Ocean.

Authors who have published with IEEE in the past five years can upload their code to Code Ocean and link it to the article published in IEEE Xplore. Articles with linked code have a Code & Datasets tab where readers can run the code without installing or downloading anything.

Follow these steps to upload your code and link it to your IEEE Xplore article:
