Research reusability is key to advancing knowledge.

When research is reusable, it allows others to:

  • Re-analyse the evidence
  • Reproduce and verify the evidence, thereby minimising duplication of effort
  • Build upon the evidence to fuel further discoveries

But what does reusable research look like? Don't worry, we've got it covered!

For our Reusability In Action series, we showcased some of F1000Research's top examples of reusable research. By utilising our range of article types and observing our Open Data Policy, each example illustrates just how easy it is to maximise the use and reuse of your research.
