How researchers store, share and use data

About this video

Traditionally, the research data associated with a project has remained buried in a notebook or computer file. That is all changing. Today, it is clear sharing research data is vital if we want to make scientific findings reproducible and allow other researchers to build upon existing work. 

However, the current infrastructure for long term storage and sharing of data is still limited. And, researchers, whatever their career stage, are often unaware of the solutions already on offer.

In this webinar recording, Elsevier’s Helena Cousijn outlines the nine criteria your research data must fulfil if you want it to be saved, shared and trusted.  And, she talks about the useful initiatives that can help you meet those goals, from data repositories to new journal formats and article types.  

You’ll come away with a clear understanding of how to submit data with your journal article and other steps you can take to share it more widely. You will also learn about the visualization tools available to bring your data to life.
