Compartir datos: hacia una investigación más sostenible

En Psicología hay poca tradición de compartir los datos directos de nuestras investigaciones. Esta falta de tradición, más otras circunstancias, reflejan algunas debilidades de la psicología como ciencia. Se exponen las razones por las que hay poca disposición a compartir los datos y se presentan contra-argumentos para defender los beneficios que tendría un cambio en esta actitud. Aparte de fortalecer el carácter científico de la psicología, este cambio redundaría en un desarrollo más sostenible de la investigación, permitiendo prácticas como el análisis secundario y el reciclado de datos. Se proponen vías de actuación para facilitar este cambio.

Data sharing: Towards a more sustainable research. In psychology, there is little tradition of sharing raw data from one’s research. This lack of tradition, along with other circumstances, reflects some weaknesses of psychology as a science. The reasons for which this scarce willingness to share data and the counter-arguments in favour of the benefits that a change in attitude would involve are discussed in this article. Such a change would not only strengthen the scientific nature of psychology, but also result in a more sustainable development of the research, allowing practices such as recycling and secondary analyses of raw data. Some ways of action to facilitate this change are also suggested.
