Bring out your DATA to make your research datasets reusable, visible, discoverable and citable. Archiving and safely securely storing your data are important established steps in the scholarly communication process; increasingly, publishing and sharing your data is too.. Depositing data in QUT’s Research Data Finder is now easier than ever.
Publishing and sharing your research data, under a Creative Commons licence, is good practice and has benefits for you as a researcher since it enables you to get credit for your datasets. Many funders now have data sharing requirements and, increasingly, journals and publishers have a data sharing policy. QUT supports researchers in securely storing and safely sharing research datasets.
Research Data Finder has a new look and increased functionality. It now contains over 230 records of research datasets. Examples include:
- SAIVT-Campus Dataset
- Musician mortality data, 1956-2007
- Draft Genome Sequence of Enterococcus faecalis Strain PF3, Isolated from Adelie Penguin Feces from Antarctica
Sharing research data or information about data (metadata) can unlock opportunities for you as a researcher and can help drive innovation. QUT’s Management of Research Data policy encourages open data practices at QUT wherever possible, as there are many benefits to researchers and universities.
Contact the Research Data Librarian for more information on using Research Data Finder and the University Copyright Officer for information on licencing your dataset.
