Research data: the new gold

Abstract:

The management of ever-increasing volumes of digital research data is one of the most pressing challenges encountered by higher education and research institutions. In this chapter, we explore some of the complex issues facing institutions attempting to manage research data and the role of repositories in managing data. Considerations affecting the planning and developing of an institutional data repository are discussed, along with emerging alternatives to repositories, such as commercial journals. The growing culture of data citation is discussed and the chapter concludes with the case for open access to research data.
