Releasing my data

When the research has been concluded, some data could be required to be opened by the funders or the scientific journal. These would be the essential tasks to do:

  • Appraising and choosing the files to release
  • Converting them into an open format
  • Compiling their documentation and metadata
  • Choosing the appropriate license from Creative Commons or from Open Data Commons
    • ODC-BY OpenDataCommons Attribution License
    • PDDL Public Domain Dedication and License
    • ODbL Open Database License

Technically, it can be uploaded data into a repository or they can be added to scientific papers as supplementary material. For each way, the instructions of each service must be followed. If you have not chosen any specialized repository yet, we recommend trying one or some of these: Dataverse, Zenodo or Figshare
