No. You can decide to share part of the data or datasets.

Generally speaking, you should share and store any data which:

  • Validate or underpin the findings in your research outputs
  • Are of potential long-term value
  • Provide information of commercial value
  • You are contractually obliged to retain
  • Would be difficult or expensive to replicate

Any data which you choose not to keep must be securely disposed of.
