Access to research inputs: open science versus the entrepreneurial university

Czarnitzki, Dirk; Grimpe, Christoph LU and Pellens, Maikel (2015) In Journal of Technology Transfer 40(6). p.1050-1063
Abstract
The viability of modern open science norms and practices depends on public disclosure of new knowledge, methods, and materials. However, increasing industry funding of research can restrict the dissemination of results and materials. We show, through a survey sample of 837 German scientists in life sciences, natural sciences, engineering, and social sciences, that scientists who receive industry funding are twice as likely to deny requests for research inputs as those who do not. Receiving external funding in general does not affect denying others access. Scientists who receive external funding of any kind are, however, 50 % more likely to be denied access to research materials by others, but this is not affected by being funded... (More)
