Open science envisions that researchers will make their study data available to other investigators to facilitate research transparency and accelerate the development of knowledge. This guide describes key issues that education researchers should consider when deciding which study data to share, how to organize the data, what documentation to include, and where to share their final dataset. The guide also provides strategies for addressing related challenges and includes links to other resources, a checklist aligned to each section, and appendices that contain templates and samples.
