The value of research data can go way beyond the project for which it is created. Well-managed data can optimize it’s re-usability and research reproducibility; it also helps researchers to demonstrate good research practice and integrity.
Increasingly, researchers are expected to actively manage their research data throughout the life-cycle of scholarly interest. Learning research data management best practices has become essential, especially for early career researchers.
Impact starts with attention; and you certainly want to draw attention to your research work. Ms. Lyndsey Dixon, Editorial Director of Taylor & Francis, gave an informative talk on how to publicize our research for higher impact.
