A new focus on making research data publicly available is sweeping through the research community and being highlighted in public discussions of research. Several trends have come together to prompt this discussion: Most data generated today begin as digital rather than analog data, whether they are collected automatically by instruments connected to computers, or entered into computers for analysis after collection. A new concern about ensuring that observations, experiments, and models are reproducible requires access to original data. And the open access publication movement is accompanied by a parallel demand for open access to the data on which the publications are based. These developments challenge scientific publications to find ways to ensure data availability. They challenge researchers who are used to having exclusive access to their data for years, if not for their entire career. They challenge researchers to be more forthcoming about the basis for research. And they challenge all data repositories to accommodate and curate many more data sets. The cost of such stewardship is a challenge to universities, to research consortia, and to governments. Such open data access has the ability to change the demographics of research and the style of discovery.
