To Share or not to Share:Publication and QualityAssurance of ResearchData Outputs Report commissioned by the Research Information Network (RIN), June 2008
The digital age has offered to the research community new ways to use research findings. Research data are a valuable long-term resource and making them publicly-available is essential to realise their full potential value. But until now we have lacked a clear picture of how researchers are responding to these challenges. Based on the results of more than 100 detailed interviews with researchers across eight subject and cross-disciplinary areas, the RIN report points out that realising the full potential of data requires further progress in data management policies and practice.
