Description: Widespread sharing of data, materials, displays, and experimental procedures will improve the reproducibility of psychological science and accelerate the pace of discovery. Here, we describe some barriers to open sharing and offer practical solutions for researchers who wish to share more of the products—and process—of their research. We provide guidance to researchers about general issues in data sharing and describe solutions devised by the Databrary.org data library for storing and sharing video, audio, and other forms of sensitive or identifiable data. We also discuss ways that researchers can make shared data and materials easier for others to find and reuse. Widely adopted, these solutions and practices will increase transparency and speed progress in psychological science.
