Open Data @ MIT

Open Data @ MIT

As the capacity of the scholarly community to generate vast amounts of data has significantly increased, so has the need to share it and access it in a more open way.

Open data promote many core values, including increasing transparency and reproducibility of research findings, providing opportunities for reuse and aggregation to generate new insights, and increasing inclusion and justice of participation in the scientific process.
