Mandatory Data Archives Can’t Change the Culture of Science

Posted by rochelletractenber on 03 Nov 2011 at 00:28 GMT

Rochelle Tractenberg, the academic editor who handled the peer review of Wicherts et al., is a biostatistician and research methodologist at Georgetown University. She interpreted the association between weak evidence and failures to comply with data sharing requirements in a different way. Instead of supporting mandatory archiving of data, Dr. Tractenberg concludes that readers and reviewers of manuscripts and grant proposals should be notified of the author‟s/applicant‟s history of compliance with data sharing mandates and policies. The editorial can be found here:
