Share Your Research Data with D-Scholarship@Pitt

Openness is a value that is increasingly prevalent in research today, with open access, transparency, and sharing as areas of emphasis for institutions, funders, and publishers. Early career researchers can demonstrate to employers and funders a commitment to open research by sharing the research data that supports their ETD. By doing so, others can ask questions of the data and make new discoveries. In turn, you, the original researcher, can increase your citation rates and illustrate impact.

D-Scholarship@Pitt, the University of Pittsburgh’s institutional repository, offers long-term preservation of scholarly materials, including research data. We offer guidance on approaches for data organization and documentation to implement during a research project, with the intent of facilitating data sharing.
