Data Citation and Peer Review

25.08.2010, Age: 4078 days

To better guide readers of academic papers to actual data sets used-so that readers can evaluate for themselves the data's integrity-scientists are beginning to formulate best practices and critical research needs for robust data citation in academic papers. (Colin Schultz, AGU)

How can we judge whether the results published in a paper are really robust? Are these numbers statistically significant? Data should only be published with error bars and other statistical indicators. The peer review process needs to be adapted to meet these needs, is the conclusion of an article in this week's EOS by M. A. Parsons, R. Duerr, and J.-B. Minster.
