Open access and open data are becoming more prominent on the global
research agenda. *Funders are increasingly requiring grantees to deposit
their raw research data in appropriate public archives or stores in order
to facilitate the validation of results and further work by other

globally there are now 34 funders who require data archiving and 16 who
encourage it.
