[BOAI] Nature News Special - Data Sharing

[Forwarding from Nature.  --Peter Suber.]


Sharing knowledge is essential for the progress 
of science, but researchers do not always release 
data and research materials, even after 
publication of work. Earlier this year, two 
research communities held meetings with a broad 
range of stakeholders to discuss this issue, and 
they report their proposals to promote data 
sharing in biology in two Opinion articles in this week's Nature.

The agendas of these meetings are intended to 
spark community discussion and authors from both 
agendas will respond to reader comments in two 
free Nature Network forums surrounding 
prepublication data sharing and postpublication 
data sharing. Be sure to have your say.

In addition, a News Feature examines the 
technical and cultural hurdles that can keep 
scientists from sharing data. Exploring issues 
from antiquated technology to a lack of trust in 
other scientists, the article highlights a range of potential solutions.
