3 Easy Steps to Share COVID-19 Research Data
- Identify a specialized or general repository
- Deposit dataset(s), including processed data irrespective of its association with a publication
- Add metadata––makes your research outputs richer, connected and reusable
Metadata is additional labeling of your data
Metadata makes research data “discoverable” and links data to publications and funding information. For more on metadata: http://www.metadata2020.org
