Citation Edit

National Academy of Sciences, Committee on Ensuring the Utility and Integrity of Research Data in a Digital Age, Ensuring the Integrity, Accessibility, and Stewardship of Research Data in the Digital Age (2009) (full-text).

Overview Edit

As digital technologies are expanding the power and reach of research, they are also raising complex issues. These include complications in ensuring the validity of research data; standards that do not keep pace with the high rate of innovation; restrictions on data sharing that reduce the ability of researchers to verify results and build on previous research; and large increases in the amount of data being generated, creating severe challenges in preserving that data for long-term use.

This book examines the consequences of the changes affecting research data with respect to three issues — integrity, accessibility, and stewardship — and finds a need for a new approach to the design and the management of research projects. The report recommends that all researchers receive appropriate training in the management of research data, and calls on researchers to make all research data, methods, and other information underlying results publicly accessible in a timely manner.

The book also sees the stewardship of research data as a critical long-term task for the research enterprise and its stakeholders.
