Data never dies – Give your love a new life

Rakasta dataa -viikko
Even if your love to your data is fading, your data can have inspiring relationships with other partners. So, don’t be jealous and hide your ex-partner. Give your data a new chance with others.

Remember that data can be shared with others only if you have agreed with your collaborators to do so. Also, make an agreement with your group members, what license you will use when you open your data. The license defines the terms and conditions the data can be used. However, not all data needs to be open. You cannot share confidential information. 

CC0 waiver is the most efficient way of facilitating reuse of your data, but Creative Commons 4.0 is also widely used for data. For more information, please check our guide on How to select a Creative Commons License? 

Check the recommendations of the publishers, learned societies, and funders of your own field of science. If you are not familiar with the services, check for example:

Don’t conceal your love for data but tell about it openly. If you use data collected by someone else, tell about it by citing it. The citation gives credit to a data creator and facilitates tracking the usage and impact of the data. Elements of a data citation are as follows: name of the original creator(s) of data, title of the dataset, version, year of data collection, data collector, producer and distributor. Data archives have their own general guidelines on how to cite data.

  • Agreements on rights of use of the data should be made before you start collecting or producing the data. If you have personal or confidential data, make sure that only a limited number of people can access the data. Even though your relationship with your data is public, you shouldn’t expose too detailed information to others

Monday 10.2.

There are so many places where you can collect your research data. You can do your field work on streets, suburbs, bars, offices, jungles and mountains, for example. Access to the field is not always easy and data collection requires plenty of effort. 

Take an alternative approach to find research data. You can find research data to love and cherish by using research data finder tools such as EtsinData archives are also a good starting point. Have a look, what is available in Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) search portal Aila

Data journals (such as Data in Brief or Scientific data) offer detailed descriptions of research data and their availability. Scientific articles may have a data statement section explaining the availability of the data used in the article. A reference list of an article may contain data citations.  

Re-using already existing data is an ecological and economical choice. Create something new and found collaborators by re-using data. Feel the burning data-love in your heart!
