Data policies, plans, reports, declarations


  • Initiatives for digital research infrastructure should focus more on making standardized data openly available, and less on developing new portals. 2009 Nature 457 p.129
  • Monitoring is science's Cinderella, unloved and poorly paid. ... It is easier to get big funding for one-off projects than small funding for long-term infrastructure. 2007 Nature 450 p.789-790
  • A less frequently articulated reason for resistance to data sharing is the fact that some researchers are simply unable or unwilling to record and present their data in an unambiguous, reader friendly and archivable form. 2006 Nature doi:10.1038/444653b
  • is all too often compromised by users' reluctance to make their own materials freely available. 2006 Nature 439 p.912
  • associated with peer-reviewed articles should be submitted to recognized, public repositories where ever possible. 2006 Nature 439 p.912
  • ... by making ... data available under a Creative Commons licence, they can stipulate both rights and credits fo the reuse of data,... 2005 Nature 438 p.531 doi:10.1038/438531a
  • It is far more difficulat for an individual researcher to abtain funding to maintain a database than it is to initiate a new project ... 2005 Nature 435 p.1010
  • New ideas are needed. ...One approach would be to raise data collections to the status of citable entities in journals. 1998 Nature 393 p.107 doi:10.1038/30086
