The intertwining of reputation and sharing – The significance of standardization in preparing research data and the impact of project organization
Leibniz Universität Hannover, Leibniz Center for Science and Society, 30156 Hanover Germany
Despite efforts to increase scientists’ willingness to share research data political stakeholders and funding agencies, there is still a discrepancy between scientists’ attitude toward data sharing and their actual practice. In a first step, this paper takes a close look at scientists’ definition of research data and the influence of project organization on scientist’ willingness to share data by analyzing interviews with scientists of three different disciplines. As the analysis shows, talking about “data sharing” should always happen in the context of data preparation and its various steps. Additionally, the influence of external factors such as a special form of project organization seems to be limited.
