Field comparison
Abstract:Data reuse plays a pivotal role in science research in the data era. Given that the impact of discipline culture on data reuse is deeply rooted, we explore data reuse behaviors of the two groups of scholars with significantly different qualities, the nature science and the humanities and social science. Relying on the meta-synthesis and inductive coding approach, information about intentions, influence factors, data processing and using and data reuse barriers were extracted from 37 qualified articles and then analyzed. Results show: 1) informal channels perform a vital role in data reuse in both two communities; 2) there is a distinct correlation between data reuse and disciplinary context. 3) clear distinctions exist between two fields in data reuse barriers, disciplinary practice degrees and data reuse patterns. The results imply the urgency to establish data managers, link publications and data, and enhance data organization.
