Reasons to Manage and Publish Your Research

  • Increase visibility.
  • Save time: Planning for your data management needs ahead of time will save you time and resources in the long run.
  • Meet grant requirements: Many funding agencies now require that researchers deposit in an archive data which they collect as part of a research project.
  • Enhancing collaboration and community-building.
  • Support Open Access: Researchers are becoming increasingly more aware of the need to manage their work and consider issues of scholarly communication. The Open Data movement advocates for researchers to share their data in order to foster the development of knowledge.

Manage your data; don't let it manage you.
