In a two-year project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, investigators from Purdue University and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign are addressing the question, “Which researchers are willing to share data, when, with whom, and under what conditions?” With the assistance of graduate students, Marina Kogan and Deborah Leiter, extensive interviews are being conducted with researchers in different disciplines about their scientific workflow and range of research outputs (e.g., raw data through published forms) to identify needs for discovery, access, usage, and re-use of data.
