Scientific data management has requirements that derive from the
fundamental nature of the scientific method. This includes the need for
reproducibility of results and comparative analysis within and between
scientific disciplines. While these are fundamental to scientific progress,
there is also an evolution toward scholarly data publication that is being
realized by multiple organizations around the world; some with open-access
motivations and some with commercial motivation. The technologies that are
employed to satisfy these requirements and achieve the goals of improving
scientific progress through data-sharing and re-use have implications that
should be considered in any reasoned implementation of a scientific data
management strategy. Intellectual property rights, cyberinfrastructure
interoperability and portability also have to be considered in light of
long-term sustainability and open-access goals.
