Promoting and sharing your datasets or ongoing collections is an opportunity to promote your research profile and can lead to:
- higher citation of your papers
- future research projects
- opportunities to collect even more data.
In some disciplines open access to research data is becoming increasingly important and may be necessary for complying with funder or publisher requirements. In other disciplines, it may not be possible to make data available – but it may still be promoted, cited or announced to the wider community.
