  • I wanted to share my experience as I think it would be a good one for potential clients of yours to hear about. When I started I know we had a lot of back and forth and I'm really pleased about this and that you made me that deal. £2 bets for 4 weeks with you covering my losses. Looking back now I can't believe I ever doubted you but if I was back in that frame of mind now I'd probably be thinking the same things, I'm just glad you talked me into doing it. £2 bets lead to £5, £10, £20 and so on and now I'm joining you hitting £700 a month with £100 stakes. Me, putting a £100 bet on a horse and not worry too much about the outcome?! Never thought id ever reach that level to be honest.You did this Ben and I cannot thank you enough. ★★★ http://t.cn/A6vAxKsh

Scott Edmunds at OASP Asia: Open (and Big) Data – the next challenge

  1. 1. Open (and Big) Data – the next challenge Beyond dead trees: are publishers the problem or solution? Scott Edmunds OASPA Asia, 2nd June 2013 @gigascience
  2. 2. Harnessing Data-Driven Intelligence Using networking power of the internet to tackle problems Can ask new questions & find hidden patterns & connections Build on each others efforts quicker & more efficiently More collaborations across more disciplines Harness wisdom of the crowds: crowdsourcing, citizen science, crowdfunding Enables: Enabled by: Removing silos, open licenses, transparency, immediacy
  3. 3. Dead trees not fit for purpose 18121665 1869
  4. 4. The problems with publishing • Scholarly articles are merely advertisement of scholarship . The actual scholarly artefacts, i.e. the data and computational methods, which support the scholarship, remain largely inaccessible --- Jon B. Buckheit and David L. Donoho, WaveLab and reproducible research, 1995 • Lack of transparency, lack of credit for anything other than “regular” dead tree publication. • If there is interest in data, only to monetise & re-silo • Traditional publishing policies and practices a hindrance
  5. 5. Things holding us back: • Disincentives to share or communicate: – Ingelfinger*! Embargoes, anti preprint & early data release policies – Page/method/citation limits • Disincentives to remix – Open source approaches = plagiarism? • Disincentives to release more quickly/more granularly – “Salami Slicing” • First 2 years of citation data the only currency – “Faddism” v long term use or reproducibility. Publication bias. * T-Shirts available from Graham Steel / http://www.zazzle.co.uk/steelgraham
  6. 6. The consequences: growing replication gap 1. Ioannidis et al., (2009). Repeatability of published microarray gene expression analyses. Nature Genetics 41: 14 2. Ioannidis JPA (2005) Why Most Published Research Findings Are False. PLoS Med 2(8) Out of 18 microarray papers, results from 10 could not be reproduced
  7. 7. Consequences: increasing number of retractions >15X increase in last decade Strong correlation of “retraction index” with higher impact factor 1. Science publishing: The trouble with retractions http://www.nature.com/news/2011/111005/full/478026a.html 2.

Bjorn Brembs: Open Access and the looming crisis in science https://theconversation.com/open-access-and-the-looming-crisis-in-science-14950 More retractions: >15X increase in last decade At current % > by 2045 as many papers published as retracted Insufficient methods

  11. 11. Issues not just in China… …to publish protocols BEFORE analysis …better access to supporting data …more transparent & accountable review …to publish replication studies Need:
  12. 12. • Data • Software • Review • Re-use… = Credit } Credit where credit is overdue: “One option would be to provide researchers who release data to public repositories with a means of accreditation.” “An ability to search the literature for all online papers that used a particular data set would enable appropriate attribution for those who share. “ Nature Biotechnology 27, 579 (2009) New incentives/credit

  42. 42. Lessons learned: • Most published research findings are false. Or at least have errors. • On a semantic level (via nanopublications) discovered 4 minor errors in text (interpretation not data) • Is possible to push button(s) & recreate a result from a paper • Reproducibility is COSTLY. How much are you willing to spend? • Much easier to do this before rather than after publication
