The Open Data report is a result of a year-long, co-conducted study between Elsevier and the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS), part of Leiden University, the Netherlands.

Executive Summary


This report describes the findings of a complementary methods approach to examine the practices, motivations, and obstacles to data sharing as well as perceived advantages among researchers across disciplines worldwide. Combining information from a bibliometric analysis, a survey and case studies, this report examines how researchers share data, the attitudes of researchers toward sharing data, and why researchers might be reticent to share data.
