PASTEUR4OA Briefing Paper : Disciplinary differences in opening research data

Publié le 28 avril 2016, par Thérèse Hameau

This briefing paper presents the current state of open research data across academic disciplines. It describes disciplinary characteristics inhibiting a larger take-up of open research data mandates. Additionally, it presents the current strategies and policies established by funders, institutions, journals and data service providers alongside general data policies.


There is considerable heterogeneity amongst research data policies, some of them addressing disciplinary differences rather generically, others aligning their policies proactively with discipline-specific requirements. Some are aspirational or normative in scope, while others actively enforce particular data management practices. But while surveys repeatedly show that researchers support these normative efforts, compliance with data policies is patchy at best.
