Lost or found? Discovering data needed for research

Gregory, Kathleen, et al. « Lost or found? Discovering data needed for research ». arXiv:1909.00464 [cs], septembre 2019. arXiv.org, http://arxiv.org/abs/1909.00464.

Finding or discovering data is a necessary precursor to being able to reuse data, although relatively little large-scale empirical evidence exists about how researchers discover, make sense of and (re)use data for research. This study presents evidence from the largest known survey investigating how researchers discover and use data that they do not create themselves. We examine the data needs and discovery strategies of respondents, propose a typology for data (re)use and probe the role of social interactions and other research practices in data discovery, with the aim of informing the design of community-centric solutions and policies.
