Open Access Data and Transparency

To ensure that my research efforts remain as transparent as possible, I use the Open Science Framework through the Center for Open Science, where each step in my research is fully documented. While not all of my research is preregistered, each work complies with the OSF guidelines for Open Materials and Open Data.

In an effort to foster open access, some of my datasets are being published as data papers where the hardware, software and methods used to generate them are detailed. You can find, explore and download my data across multiple platforms, including our institutional repository (ScholarWorks), the CRHR repository (CRHR:ARCHIVE), and an internationally-recognized digital repository (Zenodo @ CERN). Each 3D scan is assigned a digital object identifier (DOI), and saved as an ASCII.ply.

There are a series of data papers available for download that include links to my data so that others can engage with, and use them in their own work. Links to selected examples are included below. Following the acceptance of a new publication, a link to that publication is subsequently added to the Zenodo entry, providing an additional level of interaction where the dataset also links back to the publication.
