Experience sampling data allows researchers to map psychological dynamics across diverse everyday contexts, giving us insights into life outside the lab. But these data are costly to collect in terms of both time and money. As such, it is ideal to be able to get the most out of an experience sampling dataset by returning to it with new research questions. This potential is multiplied when we have access to a large number of datasets in which to replicate our analyses. Sharing your data ensures that researchers get the maximum use out of these data, increasing its contribution to scientific knowledge and benefitting the scientific community at large. By adding your data to EMOTE, you will become part of a worldwide network of researchers contributing to open and rigorous science.
Data owners have the option to include a citation to a key publication using the data, which potential data users will be instructed to cite when using the data for publications, presentations, or other media. Data owners will also be provided with metrics on how many times their data has been requested to demonstrate impact. These metrics are available on the page for your dataset. In addition, if they choose to do so, data owners will be able to vet and approve requests to use their data.
