Research data can be both digital and non-digital in nature and is defined by the EPSRC as “recorded factual material commonly retained by and accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings”. Sometimes you may have sensitive data which you believe cannot be shared or you may be worried about the specifics of policy requirements in sharing your data.
