How and Why Researchers Share Data
In 2014, Wiley invited thousands of researchers from all disciplines and all geographies to participate in a large scale survey on data sharing. The goal of the research was to identify the what, where, how and why behind researcher data sharing currently, and the barriers that keep researchers from sharing. This session will explore the results of that study along with the outputs of other recent surveys into researcher perceptions of and behaviours around data sharing.
