remarkable: biologists are most prone to share unpublished data even prior to preprint stage - Comp apparently Science shares least.
A new paper in surveys when, and why, scientists choose to disclose research results before their publication:
"According to the Mertonian norm...scientific results belong to the community at large" Prepublication disclosure (and re: preprints): the heterogeneity of perspective in 9 fields, > 7000 researchers #openscience #OA
Why do researchers share their work early? For feedback, credit and to attract collaborators, research in shows #openscience (hint: that's what enables!)
All fields in research don't share the same pre-publication results. A study shows that 70% of field variation in disclosure is related to differences in respondent beliefs about norms, competition, and commercialization. #openscience for all fields.
Prepublication disclosure of scientific results: Norms, competition, and commercial orientation
Disclosure prior to publication can be: web posting, preprints, web recording, conference presentation, etc. In fact most of the disclosure is happening BEFORE preprints in biosci because by definition you need a draft for that!
