Infographic: Research data - challenges and opportunities for Japanese researchers

Infographic highlighting some of the key findings and elements of the Springer Nature survey of researchers in Japan

In 2017, Springer Nature surveyed more than 7,700 researchers worldwide, asking specifically about data sharing at the point of submitting an article for publication. The level of respondents from some regions of interest – notably Japan and China – meant that we could not do detailed analysis, so this year we have begun to extend our research to these territories. So here today we publish a survey of more than 1,000 Japanese researchers, looking at the challenges and opportunities in data sharing in Japan.
