Folks, this is from the medical research community, but the substance is very much what we’re working to address with sharing big data and long-tail both in geosciences. This is a positive sign:

A recent editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine sparked a firestorm when its authors used the term “research parasites” to describe scientists who use the data of others “for their own ends, possibly stealing from the research productivity planned by the data gatherers, or even use the data to try to disprove what the original investigators had posited”[1<https://www.teamsciencetoolkit.cancer.gov/Public/ExpertBlog.aspx?tid=4#callout>]. Scientists and others on Twitter responded by roundly and swiftly condemning the editorial and accusing its authors of being more interested in their own careers than in advancing scientific knowledge. Furthermore, the Twittersphere generally mocked and dismissed the concerns raised by the authors about being scooped or data being used improperly, considering such risks irrelevant and improbable.

We are excited to announce that a new blog column has been posted on the Team Science Toolkit, entitled,  “Data Sharing and Reuse: Expanding Our Concept of Collaboration”.

Authored by Dr. Betsy Rolland of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), this blog entry reviews the current state of data sharing and reuse and discusses the opportunities it presents and challenges that must be addressed.  Dr. Rolland presents a number of potential solutions, including systematic research that examines how scientists preserve, manage, share, and reuse data.
