Check out this article "The citation advantage of linking publications to research data" - 

"We also find an association between articles that include statements that link to data in a repository and up to 25.36% (± 1.07%) higher citation impact on average, using a citation prediction model. 

We discuss the potential implications of these results for authors (researchers) and journal publishers who make the effort of sharing their data in repositories.

All our data and code are made available in order to reproduce and extend our results."
