When you have finished treating your research data, you should upload these to a repository for research data. In many cases, research data can be archived with open access and as such be shared with others.
There are several good reasons for archiving research data. Archiving ensures safe preservation of our data for the future, and if we describe our data well, we allow other researchers to reproduce our research. Archiving might also lead to more citations, and it can open for new collaborations. In addition, the requirement on archiving open research data becomes more and more widespread among scientific journals, organisations, and funders. From September 2017, this requirement also applies to employees at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, see Principles and guidelines for management of research data at UiT.
In this webinar, we discuss the advantages of archiving research data and how we go about selecting a suitable repository. In addition, we briefly talk about archiving open metadata when the data material itself has restricted access, e.g. because of ethical, legal, commercial or security issues.
You may send in questions in advance (through a Padlet) that you want to discuss during the webinar. More information about this will be given well in advance.
