<p>Moving from day-to-day research to data publication represents a challenge for many researchers. This is especially true for long-tail data. These data are less likely to be shared by researchers and made available to the community. They are many reasons that could explain this lack of sharing. Here, we focus on three factors:</p> <p><br> The lack of immediate incentive, researchers limited knowledge on research data management (RDM) and the difficulty to integrate best practices with current practices. We built Pillar Science, a virtual research environment, to help research manage their active research data. It is a non-technical web platform that helps researchers directly benefit from day-to-day RDM while providing them the tools to easily share their finding with the community.</p>
