In Economics as a scholarly discipline, research data play a fast growing role, as empirical research becomes more and more prominent. The discussion in the academic community in this respect is mainly driven by the need for replicable empirical research on the one side and the efforts and incentives for the authors on the other side to comply with the upcoming standards. This is also reflected in the area of academic journals, where a growing number of journals accept data and code together with article submissions and some even have adopted a “Data Availability Policy” and publish the data and code together with the articles.
The presentation looks at the current situation concerning Economics journals and their data archives, with respect to Open Access of the Articles and the data and also gives a brief outlook about possible standards for journal data archives in the future.
