Current State of Microplastic Pollution Research Data

Description: The rapidly growing corpus of microplastics research and its data-scape influences research and funding priorities, public perception, and policy development. Ensuring that microplastics data are findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) is essential. This bibliographic dataset includes data that have been used to investigate the current state of data management and reporting in the microplastics research community, with a focus on publicly accessible datasets associated with peer-reviewed published studies. This dataset also contains a summary of the metadata attributes of published microplastics datasets in ten open access data repositories and documents whether the (meta)data were findable and accessible.
