Sharing and re-using open data: A case study of motivations in astrophysics

« This study sought to provide in-depth insight about the complex interaction of factors influencing motivations for sharing and re-using open research data within a single discipline, namely astrophysics. We identified the following research questions.
1. What discipline-specific characteristics influence motivation for sharing and re-using open research data?
2. What factors influence researcher’s motivations to openly share their data?
3. What factors influence researcher’s motivations to re-use open research data shared by others?
4. How can researchers in disciplines with low rates of open data sharing and re-use be encouraged to share and re-use more? (…) »
