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.
Use search engines to explore and find datasets from various repositories and services:
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. Remember to add information about both your publications and published datasets into Åbo Akademi University's research portal AboCRIS. Note that the dataset needs to be published in an external service before adding the information to AboCRIS. Instructions for how to add information about published datasets is available on the intranet (login required).
