Funding agencies around the world are requiring researchers to make available the data sets that underlie their published papers. This session explores the topic of open data sets from both a publisher and library perspective. We will report on primary research undertaken by the IEEE to understand author attitudes towards opening up data sets, as well as the specific characteristics of data sets in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science disciplines. We will then present an example of data management efforts at Stanford University to target scientific data, including plans to create bilateral linking between the published article and the supporting data. Audiences will come away with a deep understanding of the practices, challenges and opportunities for authors, librarians and publishers in opening up data sets in the technical community of computer science and electrical engineering authors
