SHARE is a higher education initiative whose mission is to maximize research impact by making research widely accessible, discoverable, and reusable. To fulfill this mission SHARE is building a free, open data set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle. The initiative is led by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Center for Open Science (COS) with the support of the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU). SHARE is underwritten, in part, by generous funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
