What is research data?

Research data refers to all of the information created, collected, and recorded by researchers during the course of their research. This can include statistical data, lab results, clinical data, databases, videos and images, interview transcripts, musical scores, maps, and any other related files.

Why share research data?

There are many benefits to sharing your research data. Sharing your research data can help fellow researchers to replicate your study and validate your results, making it easier to question, share, replicate, validate, confirm, and build upon the evidence which underpins the results. Other benefits of sharing research data include:
