Open Research Data

Availability of Research Data

Several research funders require that research data be made as openly available as possible once the research has been completed. You can consult the Sherpa/Juliet service to see different funders’ policies regarding the openness of research data.

The openness of research materials may range from full publicity to restricted access rights governed by licenses or case-specific agreements. Researchers themselves may, within certain legal limitations, define the degree of publicity and access rights to their research data when uploading them in the digital repository. Researchers can personally define the publicity and access rights to their research data when storing it in the digital repository.
