Benefits of Open Science and two-way data sharing 

GenV prioritises collaborations committed to Open Science (also called Open Research). We believe that Open Science benefits everyone – including families, the community, funders and researchers. 

Benefits for studies who collaborate with GenV: 

  • Faster and/or whole-of-state recruitment  
  • Access to GenV’s data for: 
    • Pre-existing confounders and effect modifiers 
    • Long-term outcomes 
    • Broader outcomes than could be collected by a single study 
    • Modeling trial outcomes to the Victorian population 
  • Linkage with external data within GenV or a custodian-approved environment, that would otherwise be inaccessible 
  • Increased value of GenV to the field of study  
    • More complete representation of specific conditions or characteristics  
    • Richer data relevant to the field of study 
  • “Future proofing” as funders and journal editors worldwide move to requiring Open Science approaches
