Data Sharing and Publishing

Harvard offers consultation and instruction for researchers looking to publicly share their data and research products either through traditional publishing, open data repositories, or new digital scholarship techniques. Increasingly, research funding organizations are requiring open access, and experts are available to help you determine what that looks like in the context of your research project.
