Wissenschaft: Nach Ergebnissen nun auch Daten (mit)teilen?


Data sharing in the life sciences – doch nicht so beliebt!

Indeed, researchers highlight a number of barriers to sharing their research data, including concerns about potential misuse, ethical constraints, and intellectual property. Above all, they see data as a critical part of their ‘intellectual capital’, generated through a considerable investment of time, effort and skill. In a competitive environment, their willingness to share is therefore subject to reservations, in particular as to the control they have over the manner and timing of sharing.
