As the part of its mission of identifying, collating, interpreting and delivering evidence of emerging best practices in sharing, re-using, preserving and citing data, and documenting drivers of change and the barriers impeding progress this report is an important first step.

It is a collection of success stories and lessons learned in the area of data sharing, re-use and preservation. These use cases outline the state of play in this dynamic area, and are meant to help stakeholders appreciate the vast potential for innovation as well as barriers to success in the field.

These ten tales, selected by the Opportunities for Data Exchange (ODE) project, are based on personal interviews with leaders in scientific communities, research infrastructures, management and policy initiatives.

These unique perspectives look at data sharing from many angles, and provide fresh, first-hand accounts of experience and involvement in the following areas:

  • Leading-edge scientific research
  • Funding policy
  • Coordination of large-scale e-infrastructures
  • Researcher access to e-infrastructures
  • Extending data infrastructures to meet the needs of the modern classroom.
