The Music Engagement Research Initiative is an interdisciplinary research group at CCRMA, Stanford University. Through various approaches including EEG studies, mixed-methods user research, accessibility research, and analysis of industrial data, we seek to increase our understanding of how and why humans engage with music. I will speak about our group’s research and teaching efforts around data publication and re-use. Over recent years, we have come to treat data not only as a by-product of music science research, but also as intentional scientific contributions that can be used by others. I will discuss how such efforts by the scientific community can not only support reproducible research, but also facilitate new discoveries through improved access across research fields.
