Early Career Researchers Embrace Data Sharing

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    A request for raw data from the corresponding authors of 771 animal biotelemetry-focused manuscripts, published between 1995 and 2015, highlighted a difference in data sharing practices across researcher career levels. Responses were positive in only 11% of requests made to corresponding authors (CAs) that were senior researchers, while 72% of responses were positive when CAs were early career researchers (ECRs), demonstrating that the majority of senior researchers perceived little benefit from the public data archiving of their published research, while they often remain the data custodian.
