dc.description.abstract [EN] Science policy increasingly focuses on maximising societal benefits from science and technology investments, but often reduces those benefits to activities involving codifying and selling knowledge, thereby idealising best practice academic behaviours around entrepreneurial superstars. This paper argues that societal value depends on knowledge being used, making knowledge¿s eventual exploitation partly dependent upon on whether other users¿societal or scientific¿can use that knowledge (i.e. on how far new knowledge is cognate with users¿ existing knowledge). When scientists incorporate user knowledge into their research processes, what we call `open research behaviours¿, their knowledge may be more usable. We develop a set of hypotheses concerning whether researchers¿ personal and professional characteristics are associated with open research behaviours. We find evidence which suggests that, whilst personal characteristics are not associated with open research behaviours, researchers who experience professional signals validating open research behaviours are more likely to demonstrate such behaviours. es_ES
dc.description.sponsorship The authors acknowledge the EU-SPRI Forum for the PhD Circulation grant provided to Julia Olmos-Penuela and to CHEPS as her host institution, and to the Conselleria d'Educacio, Cultura i Esport (Ref. APOSTD-2014-A-006) for the post-doctoral grant provided to Julia Olmos-Penuela. The authors acknowledge the CSIC and other IMPACTO project researchers (INGENIO and IESA) for their hard and very satisfactory work and the CSIC researchers whose answers to the questionnaire enabled us to develop the database. The authors would also like to thank Barend van der Meulen, the Rathenau Institute, The Hague, the Netherlands, for a comment on a presentation that inspired this paper, as well as to Laurens Hessels for his correspondence on the issue of research dynamism. es_ES
