Abstract

Introduction: Epidemiology plays a fundamental role in public health by providing evidence for decision making. However, the lack of access to data limits the evaluation and replicability of epidemiological studies.
Objective: Establish recommended practices for the open publication of epidemiological research data and reports, in order to maximize their value and accessibility.
Method: A systematic review of open publication guidelines was conducted. Good practices were identified in the stages of collection, storage, publication and dissemination of epidemiological information.
Results: Consensus was found on the importance of using standardized instruments, documenting metadata, storing data in repositories with open licenses, assigning digital identifiers and publishing in open access journals.
Conclusions: The adoption of these recommended practices will substantially improve the quality, replicability and use of epidemiological research. This will strengthen transparency, scientific collaboration and evidence-based decision making.
