Open access aims to make scholarly research available to wider audiences, including those beyond academia. It goes beyond making research freely available, however, and also usually involves making work available under less restrictive copyright licences.

Managing research data is an important part of the research process that includes backing up valuable outputs and controlling who has access to your data.
