New Incentive Infrastructure for Sharing Data and Other Research Outputs

We propose a new incentive infrastructure for the sharing of data and other research outputs to change research culture and practices. Three problems exist with the current infrastructure that impedes sharing research outputs. First, the current infrastructure is top-down and requirement focused and has limited incentives for sharing research outputs. Second, research papers and other research outputs are treated as one and the same. Finally, other research outputs match perfectly and in the same authorship order as research papers. In this presentation, we argue that research outputs need to be treated as separate items with separate authorship requirements. This new infrastructure will recognize traditionally neglected labor from junior researchers, facilitate flexible and interdisciplinary collaboration, and promote voluntary sharing of data and other research outputs with higher quality.
