Sharing of Research Data : report

I'm often surprised by the variety of attitudes of fellow scientists to the sharing of their data. ("What? And let other people mess with my data?!").

So, it was interesting to see this report that looked at it from the perspective of a researcher. (There are many such reports that look at it from the perspective of an institution or funding agency.) The four pages of Recommendations alone are well worth a read.

"This study, commissioned by Knowledge Exchange, gathered evidence, examples and opinions on current and future incentives for research data sharing from the researcher’s point of view, in order to provide recommendations for policy and practice development on how best to incentivise data access and reuse."
