The data repository Figshare has released the results of a global survey of 2,000 researchers in a landmark report, The State of Open Data. The report highlights the extent of awareness around open data, the incentives around its use and perspectives researchers have about making their own research data open. It also includes international viewpoints on the adoption of open data globally along with a foreword from Sir Nigel Shadbolt. The report is supported by Digital Science and the survey was conducted in partnership with Springer Nature.
