About this session
Beginning with an overview of the context for research data management, we examine why it has become increasingly important, and how good practice can benefit researchers.
Focusing on publisher and journal policies, we discuss how authors currently choose to share their data, and the pros and cons of each approach. We then explore the use of data repositories in further depth, providing guidance on selecting the best repository for your data, and the benefits you can expect from sharing data in this way.
