From Google Translate: "A change in the scientific culture should provide increased data sharing, according to a report from Elsevier. Researchers are more positive about the sharing of data, but are reluctant because they are not encouraged and trained herein.
Researchers are reluctant
To encourage the use of open data should be a change in the scientific culture. As would training and resources sharing, managing and reusing data researchers urge to do more. The reward for sharing data can work encouraging. This is stated in the report Open Data - the Researcher Perspective (external link)from Elsevier. Researchers are according to the report more positive about the sharing of data, but are reluctant because they are not encouraged and trained herein. Currently many researchers consider data as personal property and are only willing to share data as they perform joint research. It also appears that researchers share their data, do so mainly with close colleagues and not through a platform, indicating that confidence plays an important role.
Differences in data privacy
The report should be considered disciplinary, legal, cultural and local differences with regard to data privacy. Thus, the approach for the sharing of data per field research. In sectors where data is an integral part of the study, such as human genetics, the sharing of data is embedded in the conduct of the study. In disciplines where this is not essential, the way that data is shared not uniform and it happens on a smaller scale."
