Maximizing the value of research
Open data means sharing data and is made more meaningful by the term “FAIR” i.e. data that is findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable). Being more open with data means you can analyze other researcher’s findings and reuse it to inform new findings, and the research landscape becomes more efficient and accountable.
You will benefit from making your research data openly available too. More transparent data helps reviewers see how researchers went from data to analysis and provide nuanced feedback based on their own understanding of the data. When researchers make their data open, they are showing the world they are working transparently and reproducibly, building a strong reputation that will help them throughout their professional life, encouraging reuse and citation.
