To share or not to share: Publishing Research

New report looking at the publication and long term availability of research results from the Research Information Network [RIN]. The report, commissioned by JISC and NERC, looks at current practice with interviews from over 100 researchers, across eight subject and cross-disciplinary areas and makes recommendations for policy makers in four areas.

  • Creating and caring for data

  • Publishing data: motivations and constraints

  • Discovery, access and usability of datasets

  • Quality assurance

There is an excellent short summary here, with links to a .pdf down load of the Executive Summary, Full Report and Appendicies.
