An introduction to Open Access and how to make your research open.

Open Data

What is open data?

"Data citation refers to the practice of providing a reference to data in the same way as researchers routinely provide a bibliographic reference to outputs such as journal articles, reports and conference papers. Citing data is increasingly being recognised as one of the key practices leading to recognition of data as a primary research output." (ANDS Data Citation opens in a new window)

  • when datasets are routinely cited they will achieve greater validity and significance within the scholarly communications cycle  
  • citation of data enables recognition of scholarly effort with the potential for reward based on data outputs
