Catch our latest Researcher Unbound Session

Catch our Researcher Unbound session from 18 Oct 2023 where we had an insightful conversation with Prof Kan Min-Yen (NUS Computing) on his data sharing journey and the benefits of doing good Research Data Management!


Some RDM insights shared by Prof Kan:

[16:34] “When you share data... and you (describe) your data well, then it becomes much more discoverable for others… And that discovery is key if you want to promote impact.”

[16:03] “When we are not very experienced with data sharing, there's a little bit of an adoption curve that you have to surmount… so you have to prepare the metadata, and once your research group… gets sort of accustomed to it, (it’s) just sort of like filling out institutional review forms… which is absolutely necessary for a lot of research.”

[17:30] “When you're thinking about sharing your data, you really have to think about who is going to use it… and then try to visualise what types of tags or metadata would I be searching for… and then insert them into (a) system like ScholarBank, so that when a search engine like Google or another search engine is able to find that information, it can be reported (and retrieved).”

[34:11] “For people and groups that are not doing data sharing, it requires a little bit of forward thinking and to say, you know, is it possible that by sharing data, my group is going to create more impact overall... because the way we create impact is not (just) to create work, it's to create work that's being used by others.”
