Dear all,
I am interested to read up on what is known about how researchers share 
scientific data.

    * Under what conditions do researchers share scientific data freely,
      e.g., using a Creative Commons license?
    * When do they 'trade' data for money, citations, etc. and how do
      they initiate and execute these transactions?
    * When do they decide not to share?
    * What 'marketplaces' for scientific data exchange exist today?

Pointers to relevant papers, reports, web sites would be much appreciated.
There might also be research that looks into the sharing/trading of 
resources, facilities, tools, space, students, etc. relevant for 
understanding how researchers share data.

Thank you all,

Katy Borner
