Preserving, sharing, and disposing of your research data

Information on how and where to preserve research data, and how to write a data access statement for research publications.

For many funders, long-term data preservation and sharing (where appropriate) is increasingly becoming a requirement. You need to decide what data to preserve, and where, and to what extent it can be shared. Equally it is sometimes necessary to safely dispose of your research data.
