    Motives of contributing personal data for health research: (non-)participation in a Dutch biobank.R. Broekstra, E. L. M. Maeckelberghe, J. L. Aris-Meijer, R. P. Stolk & S. Otten - 2020 - BMC Medical Ethics 21 (1):1-11.
    BackgroundLarge-scale, centralized data repositories are playing a critical and unprecedented role in fostering innovative health research, leading to new opportunities as well as dilemmas for the medical sciences.
