Anyone using your data will need to credit you in the same way as if someone were making use of an article or monograph. As such, open research data has been linked to an increase in citations, research visibility and impact, and opens up the possibility of future collaborations to build upon initial studies.

You have the assurance that your research evidence is securely backed-up and filed with appropriate metadata, making it accessible for future re-use.
