IELTS Writing Task 2(Sample Answer)

Some people believe that it is good to share as much information as possible in scientific research ,business and the academic world. Others believe that some information is too important or too valuable to be shared freely. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Although the vast majority of people believe that right to share information is crucial for the world progressed, the others are under the perception that information should not be readily available. From my point of view, I am biased towards both the statements, and the reason for it is discussed in the below essay.
 
To start with, the availability or sharing of information at no cost is a key factor in how scientists execute their research. Despite it being freely accessible, many researchers may not be interested in spending money to obtain data for their work. This is likely to hinder the growth of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Management (STEM). Consider the scenario, wherein universities do not have access to journals or publications, this can result in absolutely zero STEM advancements and future funding. Hence from my perspective, I believe, it is important to share such information freely.
 
On the other hand, there are certain types of data that are considered to be extremely valuable and should not be shared openly. Drawings and schematics of topics related to modern warfare, weapons technology, etc.. can be safeguarded by government regulations. By sharing these openly, it will possibly increase global terrorism. For example, by such documents reaching the hands of terrorist groups can result in developing bombs and guns which is of no good to human progress. Therefore, I yet again, stand by this point of view as well.
 
In conclusion, in my view, those types of information that pose no threat to humans can be shared freely and without the kind of monetary restrictions; however, the ones that do, should have some kind of regulations to limit its freeness.
