Oh dear, this is finally happening <3 Am in.

Btw, I proposed a combination of talk + workshop on the status of open data
in research for the OKCon, with a friend from Wikimedia France. We're also
planning to be writing a paper on this, very possibly to be submitted to
PLoS ONE. Any input welcome :)

> Hi All
> I'm sure you're familiar with the excellent blog Retraction Watch run by
> Ivan Oransky and Adam Marcus http://retractionwatch.wordpress.com/
> In an blog post in 2012 [1], Jonathan Eisen suggested having a Data Watch
> site in the same vein. We discussed something similar in the Open Science
> Working Group at various times previously.
> We had considered using it to discuss both invalidated datasets (more like
> retraction watch) and data sharing cases where data is simply not available
> to back up published research, particularly where researchers refuse to
> share data despite agreements with funders or publishers to do so on
> request. The most well known examples recently being Reinhart-Rogoff [2]
> and (many) clinical trials [3].
> It would be interesting in the case of datasets found to be invalid to
> classify where the problem arose - mislabelling of columns, coding errors,
> data gaps?
> If you're interested in working on something like this (and the exact
> formulation of this is still very much up for discussion - all thoughts
> welcome!), then speak now and we can set up a group of founding editors :)
