Ivan, are you familiar with the Open Science Framework? That was started by
a group of social psychologists and is a platform for sharing materials and
And the Reproducibility Project is shared on it. https://osf.io/ezcuj/
There's Databrary for storing developmental and behavioral research data
and videos. http://databrary.org/about.html
Those are two specific things related to sharing psychology data that I
know about, aside from the more general ways people share materials.

>> Short version:
>> I'm working on something too. Completion will depend on more than just

>> Long version:
>> I hate to be a solutions person, meaning, I do not want to say I have the
>> answer. I have however been looking at semantic web technologies and a
>> project called Sensorica which uses open value accounting for contributions
>> to particular projects (e.g.
>> I talked to Tiberius Brastaviceanu
>> <https://plus.google.com/117593809719446924575> today about enhancing
>> his value networks for sensors for biomedical applications by basing them
>> on ontologies (used for the semantic web) to promote universal use without
>> assistance (not just with help with the database designers). Secondly, I
>> talked to him about describing project components in such a way that they
>> can easily be integrated with components from other projects and so they do
>> not have to reinterpreted from locations external to Sensorica.
>> I have been publishing my work on blogs (
>> http://adistributedeconomy.blogspot.com/) and on my website (
>> http://bshambaugh.org/Master_17.html [research],
>> http://bshambaugh.org/eispp3.pdf [main wireframe])
>> I believe this is valuable because at the University of Oklahoma
>> Supercomputing Symposium yesterday it was emphasized by (I believe) Irene
>> Qualters, Division Director at the National Science Foundation, that new
>> economic models (e.g. quarterly review is not enough?) and new software for
>> researchers needs to be investigated (
>> In addition, I hope that it offers some solutions to what Peter
>> Murray-Rust was saying and perhaps provide something for people to work

>>> Great offer, and I am sure you will get many offers.
>>> A lot of modern science is (or should be) knowledge-driven - much of the
>>> work that is currently done is wasted through bad or zero publication. So
>>> there is much scope for repurposing and re-using the current literature.
>>> Bench science is harder - yes there is some bioscience that can be done in
>>> a garage but for much of it we have to have academic labs.
>>> Many/most academic scientists are very bad at data. They need help; Some
>>> would welcome additional help. I can envisage a "market" where data
>>> scientists "outside" academia work with bench scientists "inside" academia.
>>> It will be very difficult to get this started, because of culture.
>>> Academics are now forced to compete against everyone instead of
>>> collaborate. Citizens are seen as second-class. This is simplistic, but
>>> it's a common view.
>>> I think Open Notebook Science has great potential. Here's a talk I gave
>>> in Brasil at their wonderful Open Science meeting:
