Characterizing the Biomedical Data-Sharing Landscape

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  01 January 2021

Abstract

Advances in technologies and biomedical informatics have expanded capacity to generate and share biomedical data. With a lens on genomic data, we present a typology characterizing the data-sharing landscape in biomedical research to advance understanding of the key stakeholders and existing data-sharing practices. The typology highlights the diversity of data-sharing efforts and facilitators and reveals how novel data-sharing efforts are challenging existing norms regarding the role of individuals whom the data describe.

The general norm has been supported by a range of justifications, including avoiding coercion and undue inducement, lack of value creation by individual participants, and ensuring the sustainability of the research enterprise.
