Today, most research projects are considered complete when a journal
article based on the analysis has been written and published. The trouble
is, unlike Galileo's report in Sidereus Nuncius, the amount of real data
and data description in modern publications is almost never sufficient to
repeat or even statistically verify a study being presented. Worse,
researchers wishing to build upon and extend work presented in the
literature often have trouble recovering data associated with an article
after it has been published. More often than scientists would like to
admit, they cannot even recover the data associated with their own
published works.
