Zimmerman, A S. (2008). Science, Technology & Human Values, 33(5), 631-652. doi: 10.1177/0162243907306704.

My thought is to conceptualize what it means to reuse data at a very high level and attempt to classify those activities into a taxonomic structure. This would be a helpful framework to evaluate scholarly material from this point forward.
