Effective management of research data improves efficiency, reduces the risk of loss of data, and enables data to be re-used and shared, thus providing best value for money.
Sharing your research data has a number of benefits:
- Enables research results to be independently validated
- Provides opportunities for collaborative work and partnerships
- Increases the impact of research, by improving visibility and increasing citations
- Enables datasets to be used in new ways
The University of Wolverhampton recognises the importance of sharing research data to both research excellence and the research community: the Research Data Management Policy highlights the university’s commitment to the effective management of research data.
