Digital Science announced the publication of the 2021 “State of Open Data report from Springer Nature, figshare, and Digital Science. It shows that there is “increasing concern among researchers about misuse of data as well as a lack of credit and acknowledgement for those who do openly share their data.” Now in its sixth year, the report draws on a survey of 4,200-plus researchers from around the world, looking at the “motivations, challenges, perceptions, and behaviors toward open data.”

Key findings include the following:

  • 55% [of respondents] feel they need support in regard to copyright and licenses when making research data openly available.
  • 73% [of respondents] strongly or somewhat support the idea of a national mandate for making research data openly available.
  • 65% of respondents have never received credit or acknowledgement for sharing data.
