This graphic illustrates some of the gains for researchers who share their data. These benefits are shown for researchers who share their data openly or even in a limited way. A little sharing and collaboration can have a big impact.
Australia has a growing culture of open data and data sharing. At eResearch SA we believe it is only a matter of time before data sharing (where appropriate) will be a requirement of public research funding. This will have a positive impact on research practices and outcomes for the community.
How we can help
eResearch SA can assist researchers in determining the best way to manage access to their research data and supports a number of platforms to enable sharing, discovery and reuse.
