State of Open Data 2017

Happy Open Access Week!

As part of the annual celebration of open research we have released our State of Open Data report.

Some of the key findings include:

- Respondents have become more aware of open data sets (82% up from 73%) than in 2016
- Age does not appear to be a major factor in this trend
- 74% of researchers are curating their data for sharing
- Willingness of researchers to reuse open data sets in their own research has grown, a 10% increase to 80%, with the increase replicated across age groups
- Researchers who routinely share their data has also grown since 2016, although by a smaller amount, from 57% to 60%
- The proportion of researchers who have never made a data set openly available has reduced in the last year
- Looking deeper we can see further promise for the future of open data, as 70% of these researchers are now willing to reuse open data sets in their own research (up from 65%)

Check out the report and let us know what you think!
