[R-meta] Open Data: preferred way of publishing

Dear Moritz,

from my limited experience, I would recommend the Open Science Framework (
https://osf.io/), which includes many of the ideas in Github (e.g. you can
clone someones project and work with that) but could be advantageous w.r.t.
data sharing. Harvard's dataverse has some visibility, too, and also allows
you to publish code etc.

While I have published some material in online supplements, I do not like
the fact that the publishers copyright extends to that (which could limit
the re-use of the data you intend). I would definitely not recommend your
website, as this is typically way less stable than professional hosting.

Best wishes,

> Dear colleagues,

> I am currently finishing on a meta-analysis, preparing for publication. I
> intend to publish my set of primary data (it’s been quite some work, and I
> guess it could be helpful to review and discuss on the topic). Primary data

> being imported to R, and analysis was run in Rstudio in a Markup file.
> My question is now: based on your experience and preferences, what would
> be your ideal way to make the primary dataset and the calculations
> accessible for review and further research? Add it to the article as
> supplemental material, upload it to arxiv, GitHub, or just on my website?
> Any suggestions are welcome!
