Session Title: Getting the incentives right: removing social, institutional and economic barriers to data sharing
Session Organisers: Peter Fitch, Massimo Craglia, Rufus Pollock, Simon Cox, Daniel Fowler
Much work has been done relating to the technical aspects of scientific data sharing. The progress in many cases has been painstakingly slow, and has been particularly hampered by a lack of awareness that the barriers and risks to be addressed are socio-technical concerns, with the non-technical concerns –the social, institutional and economic aspects of data sharing, often over looked.
This session seeks research papers that identify and address the social, institutional and economic barriers to data sharing, particular with regard to incentives and disincentives. We are especially interested in review or position papers that can be used to form a coherent research plan for the future.
Some areas of special interest are:
- Approaches to understanding and changing attitudes and behaviours to enable data sharing.
- Assessing the cost, benefits and distributional consequences of improved sharing scientific data.
- Identification of incentives and disincentives across the actors within the scientific data supply chain.
- Approaches to improving the authorising and enabling environment for data sharing – institutions, policy, legislation that create and supplement incentives to share data.
- New business models and approaches to funding data sharing operational costs that can reduce disincentives for sharing.
