Engaging Researchers

Tools, tips and tricks for building an engaged RDM community

Benefits of sharing

  • 'Traditional' benefits of sharing - infographic by Danny Kingsley and Sarah Brown
  • Sharing is fundamental to being an academic: Ideas and results need to be shared to move human knowledge forward
  • Non-positive results need be shared not to waste time and resources
  • Share once and don’t be bothered - describe the data once in a repository, add the link to data in your paper and don't be troubled by e-mails with data requests coming to the corresponding author
  • Be able to find your own data and ensure continuity of your research
  • Get access to data shared by others
