The SURF foundation has just released a literature review describing what researchers want with regard to storage of and access to research data

Fifteen recent sources were studied, covering the Netherlands, Europe,the UK, the USA, and Australia.

The main findings of the review are that researchers can benefit from support services in managing their digital data, although these services must meet a number of requirements if they are to be successful. Although there are major differences in the way disciplines conduct their research, there are also common factors across disciplines when it comes to research data storage and access.

Notably, storage and preservation are two distinct issues for researchers. Although they expressed a clear need for support in day-to-day storage, they see preservation as a different step that falls somewhat outside their immediate scope of interest. They also indicated a clear wish to be in control of who has access to their data and under what conditions.
