Understanding open data

What the event covered

In this webinar, we took a deep dive into open data, and what it means in practice when publishing your research. We explained how open data fits into broader open research, which aims to encourage transparency, accessibility & reproducibility of research.

We also explored varied definitions of ‘data’, how to plan your research to make sharing easier, how to choose a data repository and linking shared data to your research. In this session, Matt Cannon, explains the exciting opportunities available through using open data, and the policies and practices in place to support this at Taylor & Francis.

This webinar is part of the Taylor & Francis Researcher Webinar Series 2023.
