Results from the questionnaire study on Open Access

During the spring 2009, two questionnaire studies directed to research students and professors within the humanities and social sciences were undertaken. The purpose of these studies was to gain a greater insight in the respondants attitudes on the reusage of digital research data, measures needed to increase reusage and barriers of sharing their research data with other researchers.
