Publishing research data

Traditionally publishing the results of your research in a journal article or book was the main way to share the findings of your research. However, it is increasingly best practice, and often required by research funders, for researchers to publish the final set of data that underpins the findings of their research. This page will give you some brief guidance on what to consider when publishing your data - the ideal time to consider these questions is when writing a Data Management Plan in the preparatory stage of a research project.
