IN046:
Open Data and Research Integrity: Data and Software Citation, Provenance, Rigor, and Repositories





Session ID#: 26607

Session Description:
Research integrity, reproducibility, and future scientific discoveries depend on our current science (data, methods, software) being discoverable, transparent, and well understood. Many researchers use publications to identify datasets that would be useful in new research. Publishers have traditionally allowed data to be included in supplements, with no requirement for data citation, proper provenance or preservation in a repository. While this has been changing recently, there are still no common data and software management practices across the researcher community that support data and software preservation past the end of the research project. Data and software need the same level of rigor and documentation that scientists practice on the research itself.

This session will identify the existing best practices, the value of and challenges to their adoption across a broad range of disciplinary cultures, and opportunities for awareness.
