DataONE:Open Research Output Early Adopters Study
This DataONE OpenWetWare site contains informal notes for several research projects funded through DataONE. DataONE is a collaboration among many partner organizations, and is funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) under a Cooperative Agreement.
Information pertaining to the DataONE Open Research Output Early Adopters Study.
Researchers are increasingly required to share data as a condition of funding, publishing, or both. Open access services enabling data sharing are emerging. This study evaluates opinions and motives of early users of the “Web 3.0” research output publishing and storage site “Figshare” (www.figshare.com).
In addition to demographic information, questions relate to use and opinions of the Web site, and of data sharing in general.
