[BOAI] Nature News Special - Data Sharing
From: Peter Suber <peters AT earlham.edu>
[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. http://links.ealert.nature.com/ctt?kn=10&m=34026902&r=MTc3MDc0NjU2MwS2&b=2&j=NTc3ODk5ODgS1&mt=1&rt=0 http://links.ealert.nature.com/ctt?kn=9&m=34026902&r=MTc3MDc0NjU2MwS2&b=2&j=NTc3ODk5ODgS1&mt=1&rt=0 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.
