The importance of effective data sharing and reuse to funders and others supporting research

"Key points

  • Wellcome requires grantees to submit and maintain an Outputs Management Plan, the quality of which have improved over time. 
  • To stimulate re-use of data, the Wellcome Data Re-use Prizes  were launched in 2018.
  • The Wellcome prizes did not receive the volume of submissions expected, one possible reason being the lack of clarity about the time required to produce a worthy entry.
  • Researchers identify publishers as the source relied upon to make data open, and there are steps publishers can take to help.
  • However, there is also a role for funders to unlock the potential of data."
