How research funding affects data sharing

Abstract

In order to encourage interdisciplinary research, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) are mandating that researchers make their data public in an effort to provide incentives for data sharing. While this has encouraged data sharing in some fields, other fields with little NSF or NIH funding do not have the same incentives to encourage such sharing. In this work, we find that these other funding sources either fail to encourage data sharing and in some cases actively discourage it.
