     The move to share data started with funder mandates for certain types of data, such as genome sequences, and is spreading to other areas within the biological sciences. Why now? Why has the drive to share data started and why is it growing? Why does data sharing matter and what advantages can it bring individuals and fields? How do we comply with present or future mandates from funding agencies and journals? As primatologists, how do we share data safely? How does Wiley, as the publisher of the American Journal of Primatology, approach data sharing? In this roundtable, we will discuss the data sharing movement, and particularly how it applies to primatology. We will hear from experts in library science, as well as a scientist involved in the data sharing movement in psychology, and an editorial team from the American Journal of Primatology.
