Aspects you should consider when thinking about the access to your data

Few researchers always work in the same location, so you will need remote access to your data. You will probably also be sharing files with others, either as part of a project or through routine information-sharing with colleagues. In addition to accessing your own data, you may want to access existing sources of data.

Once you finish your project, you should also preserve and share your own data with your research community through a digital repository or data centre (which may garner data citations).
