Reseach data which has been deposited or opened can be found in the repositories where they have been made available. Datasets can also be found in search services which harvest information from several repositories.
Idea: Datasets which have been made openly available can be used in teaching and re-used for course assignments, theses etc.(depending on the licensing)
Publishing (meta)data is an academic merit. Therefore, it is important to remember to cite both your own datasets and other researchers' datasets.
