Data is the new oil is the jargon of the 21st century, which has been widely promoted in the Global North Countries. Such movement has not been widely echoed in some parts of the globe. Although some initiatives like,,, and should have been acknowledged and appreciated. The status of reusable data availability in most countries, especially in Indonesia remains low, despite the relative technology readiness (in 2014) is higher than other SE Asian and African countries, and the release of Public Information Disclosure Act in 2008. One of the indicators is very low reusable data sharing in Indonesian research and academic environment, in contrast to the fact that Indonesia publishes the most open access journals. Researchers would literally scratch their way for reusable data from previous researches before they decided to replotted or retyped the available data. Such inefficiency would circle back when the later researchers also would not share their data in reusable form. The principle of transparency and build upon previous knowledge would never be met in akin situation. We need to educate more stakeholders on the benefits of reusable data and how to share them. For only then we get to say that Data is the new “meaningful oil”, especially when dealing with achieving sustainable development goals.
