Dear Stefan:

DataONE also keeps a list of Data Stories, some good some bad, based on interviews with real data scientists.

Hi Stefan,

I keep a bookmarks list of data horror stories here: https://pinboard.in/u:kbriney/t:dataHorrorStories/

I also recommend Dorothea Salo's horror story list here: https://pinboard.in/u:dsalo/t:horrorstories/

JISC is also starting to compile data stories - some good, some bad - here: http://datastories.jiscinvolve.org/wp/

Hope this helps!

Dear list members,

I’m looking for actual cases where research has been prevented or impaired by poor data management and/or sharing practice, preferably in Europe but anywhere is fine. Created scenarios (such as this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2zK3sAtr-4) are easy to find, or indeed imagine, but real-life examples would be valuable in discussing RDM with researchers (and funders).

I’m now hoping that your collective experience could help me identify some cases (not necessarily identified by name; “a New Jersey oncologist in 2010” or “a French oceanographer in 2013” would suffice). Feel free to contact me on or off the list. I’d be immensely grateful for any and all help!
