At the end of your project

When your project is about to be finished you need to make some important decisions concerning your data and what is going to happen to it onwards, and in what way. Investigate if there are any specific requirements from research funders or others regarding data availability and archiving.

Archiving

According to Swedish law, research data must be archived.

Availability, reusing and sharing

If you are planning to make your data available for others there are several ways to do this.  Note that if your data contains personal details it must be anonymised before it is made public.

Publish and share your data

Open research data is searchable, depending on where it has been uploaded – in a data repositorium, in special data journals, or as a supplement to a journal article. 

Share your data at the Swedish National Data Service (SND) here

Licenses

Feel free to use standardised licenses, for example CC licenses, to make evident how your data can be used.
