Open Data in Action - Open Access Week 2016
The theme of this year’s Open Access Week is Open in Action. What better way to live that theme than to make your research data open?!
We’re hosting a competition during Open Access Week (24-30 October) where we invite you to upload your open data to figshare. It’s super easy!
- Upload your data to figshare. If your institution has access to figshare for institutions, be sure to upload it there!
- Use the keyword ‘OA Week 2016’ when filling in the required metadata
- Publish it!
We’ll pull all the data with an ‘OA Week 2016’ keyword into a Collection for everyone to see.
We’re giving prizes for the most viewed data in the Collection. Share your data on social media (see our guide here for tips on how to do that:https://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.3822558.v4) - the top three pieces of data with the most views will receive some Digital Science and figshare swag!
All participants will receive a badge on their figshare profile page showing their participation in the competition. Badges will also be given to those who have the highest item views, so be sure to share your data!
We look forward to seeing your data
