 Journal of New Studies in Sport Management (JNSSM) works with some organizations as the Islamic World Science   Citation Database (ISC), The Iran National Library and Archives, and own server of the Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman for maintaining our own digital archive. This makes possible the permanent availability and preservation of scholarly research and ensures accessibility by converting and upgrading digital file formats to comply with new technology standards.

  Data Citation

 Data should be cited in the same way as articles, books, and web citations. Authors are required to include data citations as part of their reference list. Data citation is appropriate for data held within institutional, subject-focused, or more general data repositories. It is not intended to take the place of community standards such as in-line citation of GenBank accession codes. When citing or making claims based on data, authors must refer to the data at the relevant place in the manuscript text and in addition, provide a formal citation in the reference list. Journal of   New Studies in Sport Management (JNSSM) follows the format proposed by the Joint Declaration of Data Citation   Principles: Authors; Year; Dataset title; Data repository or archive; Version (if any); Persistent identifier (e.g., DOI)”.

  Data Sharing Policy

Journal of New Studies in Sport Management (JNSSM) uses the Basic Data Sharing Policy. The journal is committed to a more open research landscape, facilitating faster and more effective research discovery by enabling reproducibility and verification of data, methodology, and reporting standards. Journal of New Studies in Sport   Management (JNSSM) encourages authors to cite and share their research data including, but not limited to: raw data, processed data, software, algorithms, protocols, methods, materials. Authors are encouraged to share or make open the data supporting the results or analyses presented in their article where this does not violate the protection of human subjects or other valid privacy or security concerns.

 Journal of New Studies in Sport Management (JNSSM) encourages authors to share the data and other artifacts supporting the results in the article by archiving it in an appropriate public repository. Authors should include a Data   Accessibility Statement, including a link to the repository they have used, in order that this statement can be published alongside their paper.

 Journal of New Studies in Sport Management (JNSSM) requires authors of Original Investigation, and Special Paper articles to (1) place the de-identified data associated with the manuscript in a repository; and (2) include a Data Availability Statement in the manuscript describing where and how the data can be accessed.

 Journal of New Studies in Sport Management (JNSSM) defines data as the digital materials underlying the results described in the manuscript, including but not limited to spreadsheets, text files, interview recordings or transcripts,   images, videos, output from statistical software, and computer code or scripts. Authors are expected to deposit at least the minimum amount of data needed to reproduce the results described in the manuscript.

  Data can be placed in any repository that makes data publicly available and provides a unique persistent identifier,   including institutional repositories, general repositories (e.g., Figshare, Open Science Framework, Zenodo, Dryad,   Harvard Dataverse, OpenICPSR), or discipline-specific repositories.

 The Data Availability Statement should be placed in the manuscript at the end of the main text before the references.   This statement must include (1) an indication of the location of the data; (2) a unique identifier, such as a digital object identifier (DOI), accession number, or persistent uniform resource locator (URL); and (3) any instructions for accessing the data, if applicable.

  At the point of submission, you will be asked if there is a data set associated with the paper. If you reply yes, you will be asked to provide the DOI, pre-registered DOI, hyperlink, or other persistent identifier associated with the data set(s). If you have selected to provide a pre-registered DOI, please be prepared to share the reviewer URL associated with your data deposit upon request by reviewers.

 Where one or multiple data sets are associated with a manuscript, these are not formally peer-reviewed as a part of the journal submission process. It is the author's responsibility to ensure the soundness of data. Any errors in the data rest solely with the producers of the data set(s).

 Please note: As you are submitting your manuscript to the Journal of New Studies in Sport Management (JNSSM), where submissions are double-blind peer-reviewed, the main text file should not include any information that might identify the authors (i.e., Author Name, Address, Conflict of Interest and fund related information). As a data availability statement could reveal your identity, we recommend removing this from the anonymized version of the manuscript.

 Exceptions to this policy will be made in rare cases in which de-identified data cannot be shared due to their proprietary nature or participant privacy concerns. Exceptions to policy and restrictions on data availability are granted for reasons associated with protecting human privacy, issues such as biosafety, and respecting terms of use for data obtained under license from third parties. Confidential data, e.g., human subject or patient data, should always be anonymized, or permission to share should be obtained in advance. If in doubt, authors should seek counsel from their institution’s ethics committee.

 Authors should include a data accessibility statement, including a link to the repository they have used, in order that this statement can be published alongside their paper. Below are some examples.
