Manage Your Research Data: Open Data

This guide provides a primer on the fundamentals of data management.

Open Data

Open Data is an alternative to large data archives, which charges for access and storage. Open Data is the fundamental belief that free access to data allows great collaboration, transparency, and accountability, while also enabling and encouraging future research. In addition to propriety data repositories, research data can also be deposited  in open, freely-accessible repositories (including PDXScholar). This increases access to, and subsequent use of, research data.
