Transparency and availability of data for cancer research
Open research data allows for verification, replication, scrutiny, and subsequent analyses of published studies, while reducing likelihood of research duplication. By contrast, failing to publish data, which is a key impediment in the fight against cancer and non-communicable disease epidemics, hinders timely and effective response to these challenges. Hence, data should be liberated and made widely available to researchers.

Abstract

Open research data allows for verification, replication, scrutiny, and subsequent analyses of published studies, while reducing likelihood of research duplication. By contrast, failing to publish data, which is a key impediment in the fight against cancer and non-communicable disease epidemics, hinders timely and effective response to these challenges. Hence, data should be liberated and made widely available to researchers.
