Are you someone who has been mulling over any of the following questions:

  1. How can I go about uploading my research data to an Openly Access repository so that I can satisfy my academic publisher’s requirements?
  2. How can I provide reviewers with access to my research data as part of the peer-review process?
  3. How can I obtain a Digital Object Identifier for my research data so that I can satisfy my academic publisher’s demands?
  4. How can I ensure that my research data are openly accessible after I graduate from Stellenbosch University?
  5. How can I make previously published research data more findable?

Well, if that is the case you need to look no further than SUNScholarData, Stellenbosch University’s very own institutional research data repository.
