A new focus on making research data publicly available is sweeping through
the research community and being highlighted in public discussions of
research. Several trends have come together to prompt this discussion: Most
data generated today begin as digital rather than analog data, whether they
are collected automatically by instruments connected to computers, or
entered into computers for analysis after collection. A new concern about
ensuring that observations, experiments, and models are reproducible
requires access to original data. And the open access publication movement
is accompanied by a parallel demand for open access to the data on which
the publications are based. These developments challenge scientific
publications to find ways to ensure data availability. They challenge
researchers who are used to having exclusive access to their data for
years, if not for their entire career. They challenge researchers to be
more forthcoming about the basis for research. And they challenge all data
repositories to accommodate and curate many more data sets. The cost of
such stewardship is a challenge to universities, to research consortia, and
to governments. Such open data access has the ability to change the
demographics of research and the style of discovery.
