This paper presents some indications to the existence of a citation
advantage related to sharing data using astrophysics as a case. Through
bibliometric analyses we find a citation advantage for astrophysical papers
in core journals. The advantage arises as indexed papers are associated
with data by bibliographical links, and consists of papers receiving on
average significantly more citations per paper per year, than do papers not
associated with links to data.
