Prof Borgman Asks 'If Data Sharing Is the Answer, What Is the Question?'

Christine Borgman—a Professor in Information Studies at University of California, Los Angeles—has been given a three-year research grant by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to analyze how data are handled in four different research projects with the aim of simplifying data practices and challenging assumptions about the value of sharing data.

The following article on Professor Borgman's work and on the complexities of data sharing by Tiffany Esmailian was first published on 25 September 2015 on We hope that the WDS community will find it of interest.
