Four of Britain’s leading research organisations have set out a series of clear and practical principles for working with research data. The goal is to ensure that data gathered and generated by UK researchers is made openly available for use by others wherever possible, while taking account of both the costs involved and the relevant legal, ethical and regulatory frameworks.

Among the 10 principles laid down in the concordat are the importance of developing data skills and ensuring the data underlying a paper or report are accessible by publication date; the rights of data creators to reasonable first use; and the expectation that data users will acknowledge where they draw on others’ data.
