There still is no universally accepted definition for what is called “data sharing”, or “shared data”. It is not uncommon for it to take time before one of the many possible names and definitions of a new technology or practice becomes mainstream. At the Support Centre for Data Sharing (SCDS), with the term “data sharing” we refer to the collection of practices, technologies, cultural elements and legal frameworks that are relevant to transactions in any kind of information digitally, between different kinds of organisations. The terms “data sharing” and “shared data” are often used interchangeably, however, we at SCDS prefer “data sharing”. The reason is that our focus is on the practices of sharing, not on the data.
