Further details on session: Major research funders and the University have policies requiring open access to research publications, theses and underlying data. The general expectation is that outputs from publicly-funded research projects should be made openly available with as few restrictions as possible.
Aims: To equip participants with the knowledge necessary to ensure important research data, particularly data that underpins publications can be made open access.
Objectives: To provide insight into:
- Funder and UCLan policy on open sharing of research data
- Benefits of open practice to career and research profile
- How and when to make your research data open access
- Good practice in managing research data
Outcomes: Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the mechanisms and benefits of acting open with research data, and will understand where to go to get help.
