Making Data Count: Project to develop Data-Level Metrics

Sharing data is time consuming and researchers need incentives for undertaking the extra work. Metrics for data will provide feedback on data usage, views, and impact that will help encourage researchers to share their data. This project will explore and test the metrics ("data-level metrics") to capture activity surrounding research data.
