Abstract: Have you recently found yourself in the process of submitting a manuscript for publication, only to be confused by a request to upload your data to a repository for public access? Have you applied for grant funding that specifies data sharing as one of the terms of award? This workshop will discuss the what, why, and how of formal data sharing via publication, using the Dryad Data Repository as an example repository.
