Krämer, T., Papenmeier, A., Carevic, Z. et al. Data-Seeking Behaviour in the Social Sciences. Int J Digit Libr (2021).

Publishing research data for reuse has become good practice in recent years. However, not much is known on how researchers actually find said data. In this exploratory study, the authors observe the information-seeking behaviour of social scientists searching for research data to reveal impediments and identify opportunities for data search infrastructure.
