Data sharing is encouraged by the journal, but is generally not mandated for most articles typical of the system safety literature. However, requirements for data sharing will be at the sole discretion of the editor based on the need for transparency and reproducibility. Data sharing requirements will be identified as early as possible in the review process.

Should the editor require data sharing, the data should either be (a) published in a publicly available repository or (b) submitted as an auxiliary file in the NJCI submission. Data should be cited per the standard NJCI citation requirements.

Data shared with a manuscript must be anonymized and fully compliant with NJCI ethics policies.
