Here, we answer questions such as: How do you share data through SBDI? What are the benefits for the research community and for society at large? How can you make it easy for others to acknowledge your data collection efforts? Which institutions and projects provide data to SBDI?

Before sharing data through SBDI, it makes sense to take a step back and ask what the benefits are. They range from support to decision-makers to mechanisms supporting individuals and institutions publishing open biodiversity data. Read more about the benefits of sharing.
