Data plays an important role in research projects and publications: it provides us with an overview of a field, and a route to follow in our analysis. Without proper data, supporting our results in an objective way becomes difficult, which may promote other conclusions. Because of this, more institutions are requesting data management plans that outline a methodology to be used, such as data records, management, processing, and treatment which will be executed on them. For this, understanding the openness of research data is an opportunity to support the results obtained in our projects, and also, to increase the visibility and consultation availability that authors can have in a digital environment.
Academic institutions play a fundamental role in the access, transparency, and visibility of the different authors, and institutional repositories are the ideal channel for storing, publishing, and preserving these data.
