Abstract

The fundamental characteristics of and form of user interaction with research datasets differ considerably from those of research publications. Notwithstanding these differences, however, the majority of currently available research data repositories use the same retrieval engines for research data (datasets) as for publications (text), which retrieval engines, inevitably, are ill-suited as long-term solutions for sustainable data retrieval and use. This paper, through a systematic experiment, demonstrates the fundamental and deep-rooted differences between retrieval of research publications (predominantly text) and research data (i.e. datasets), and justifies the need for more research to build more efficient and effective data retrieval systems.
