Shared research data in academia is associated with considerable benefits. It makes studies reproducible and enables other researchers to ask new questions based on old data. Thereby data sharing in academia makes research more transparent and fosters innovation. However, curating, archiving and making data available for others is far from being the rationale for good scientific practice. The research project "Data Sharing in Academia" aims to identify factors for efficient data re-use.  After a systematic review of scientific publications on data sharing and a qualitative analysis as part of the SOEP User Survey 2014, we conducted a quantitative survey of researchers from all disciplines (n ~ 1500). In this presentation we present a generic framework for data sharing in academia and the first results from our survey.
