Share & Preserve Your Data

Norms in scholarship and publishing increasingly favor open research data. Open research data are those generated during the research process, which the researcher chooses to make available for others to freely use, fully re-use, and redistribute. Some researchers are required by the terms of their grants to make their research data open. But they are not the only researchers who choose to do so.

This page provides information and resources for those interested (by requirement or choice) in open research data. Questions addressed include: Where can I deposit my data? What is involved in making a deposit? Do I have any intellectual property rights over open my data? And how can I encourage proper citation of my data?
