Session 4: How to Share Your Data and Ethically Reuse Data Created by Others

Scholars publish their research in journals using graphs and charts to describe the data they collected. But sharing the data behind those results is
 an important part of the scholarly communication process. Sharing data allows for the validation, replicability, and reuse of those results in new and amazing ways. This section will describe the benefits of data sharing and potential for reuse and introduce the concepts of data publishing and data citation. After this module you will be able to:
  • name the audience for whom the data will be shared in order to customize the documentation and format for potential reuse,
  • explain an approach you will use to share the data in order to instill best practices for future data sharing, and
  • cite data in a properly structured format in accordance with emerging standards in order to prepare to ethically reuse data in the future.
