Opportunities and challenges in data sharing at multi-user facilities


The amount of data generated by physics experiments is increasing year by year, and there are growing calls for the data to be open. Sharing data means that the analysis can be done by researchers who were not involved in the original experiment, and can lead to additional insights. However, the practicalities of data sharing vary widely between disciplines, which have diverse needs and face different challenges. In this Viewpoint, scientists from seven multi-user facilities discuss the status of data sharing in their communities.
