Anisa Rowhani-Farid (Queensland University of Technology) used the FameLab Australia 2018 National Final as a rallying call to make data more accessible, for science’s sake.


Data is the foundation of health and medical research. Data sharing promotes the verification of research findings. Transparency is central to strengthening the scientific method, and data provides the key to scientific truth. So, how can we improve research practices to free hidden data? Anisa looks at the role journals play through their data sharing policies and incentives for researchers to share data.
