Open Research Data

Open Science is a paradigm that seeks to make scientific research, data, and their dissemination available to all levels of an enquiring society and the public.

As a dimension of Open Science, Open Research Data (ORD) has to do with facilitating access to and reuse of research data. This in turn promotes better, more effective research for the benefit of society as a whole. Through the principles of open access and reusability of research data, ORD practices support transparent, reproducible research findings. ORD also promotes collaboration by making it easier for researchers to share their knowledge across disciplines, legal systems, and borders, enabling creativity and innovation in the process.
