Open Research Data is data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone - subject only, at most, to the requirement to credit the curator and share under the same license.

Open access to research data fits within the Open Science paradigm, situated within a context of ever greater transparency, accessibility and accountability. The main goals of these developments are to lower access barriers to research outputs, to speed up the research process and to increase the quality, integrity and longevity of the scholarly record.
