Sharing protocols, methodology, code, data and findings in a way that enables free access and reuse by others through open research offers many benefits to you and your research career. These include:
- better access to and uptake of your research by clinicians, practitioners and policy makers
- greater opportunities for research collaboration
- increased transparency of research processes.
There is also some evidence that open access publications have more citations, downloads and usage than items behind a paywall.
You might also be required to make your research openly accessible in order to meet funding requirements.
Make your peer-reviewed publications accessible:
- Deposit your publications into Griffith Research Online via Symplectic Elements, making your research visible, discoverable and accessible to users of search engines such as Google and Google Scholar.
- Take advantage of transformative read and publish open access agreements.
Share open data and code:
- Publish final-state research data that support grants or publication requirements in Griffith Research Online by completing the Library request form.
- Share other data and code via open repositories such as Figshare, Dryad or Zenodo.
