Metrics for datasets from a cultural and technical point of view

The study will be of interest to all major stakeholders in science and research, such as individual scientists, funders, research institutions, universities and data centres. It provides them with more knowledge about tools to promote and reward data sharing and data publication within their scientific communities. In this landscape study, all major stakeholders have been considered in order to summarize the main views, problems and challenges that need to be tackled in the development of metrics for datasets, and in the generalization and promotion of data sharing activities.

The report has been written by Rodrigo Costas, Ingeborg Meijer, Zohreh Zahedi and Paul Wouters of the Center for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS). Leiden University.
