    Sarah Callaghan

    Chapter from the book: Moore, S. 2014. Issues in Open Research Data.


    First paragraph: It is commonly acknowledged that data is the foundation of science—without access to the data used to derive results and conclusions it is not possible for other researchers to verify and reproduce the science. Reproducibility, though a fundamental part of the scientific process, is a difficult principle to follow for a number of reasons. This is especially true in the Earth and climate sciences, where even a simple experiment of taking an outdoor air temperature measurement may vary from one minute to the next, with no possibility of repeating measurements that occurred in the past.
