Publicly funded research data deposited into data archives are public goods. Under voluntary contribution, data are under-deposited and under-prepared. Either punishment or reward should be available to motivate researchers to deposit data and spend more effort in data preparation. This paper built a simple mathematic model to analyze the effects of punishment and reward. Hopefully, it could be help policy makers decide the incentive mechanisms for data sharing.
