Research Data

“We believe that data archiving and responsible sharing facilitate good science that truly builds on previous findings and observations!”

“Data archiving is more than just the right thing to do. It ensures that research data remain accessible and comprehensible in the future. A future that may have a different use for the data their collectors had originally in mind.”

By the time a research paper is submitted, a study’s data most often reside on somebody’s computer, intertwined with analyses – some final, some merely a glimpse of ultimately discarded analyses. There are typically myriads of folders, spreadsheets, preliminary figures, which even the first author of a paper may not remember a few years from publication. Too often, source data are also simply lost because computers are discarded, programs move on and are not always backwards compatible.
Data archiving is the solution. It forces the researcher after completion of a project to separate the source (i.e., measurements, observations) and meta-data (time of sample, experiment, depth, etc) from her/his analyses and then clearly annotate the source files to ready them for online storage. This is the best way to prevent what some have called ‘conveyor belt science’ – i.e., a thirst for data to fuel one particular research angle and paper, followed by raw data being discarded again by the fast pace of time and the subsequent sense of needing more data …
