by anyone, with minimal restrictions usually limited to attributing the source and maintaining a similar sharing approach. By making data openly available, researchers enable others to reproduce and build upon their findings, thereby increasing the potential for new discoveries and fostering collaboration and innovation. Ultimately, the availability of publicly accessible data underscores the transformative power of collective knowledge, facilitating interdisciplinary collaborations and data-driven discoveries.

IntechOpen has partnered with Figshare to enhance the accessibility and visibility of their authors’ research data. Through this collaboration, authors are provided with a platform to securely preserve and share their research data.
