Abstract. Data stewardship is an essential element of the publication process. Knowing how to enact generally described data policies can be difficult, however. Examples are needed to model the implementation of open-data polices in actual studies. Here we explain the procedure used to attain a high and consistent level of data stewardship across a special issue of the journal, Climate of the Past. We discuss the challenges related to (1) determining which data are essential for public archival, (2) using previously published data, and (3) understanding how to cite data. We anticipate that open-data sharing in paleo sciences will accelerate as the advantages become more evident and the practice becomes a standard part of publication.
