ASIST2017: Making A Case for Open Research: Implications for Reproducibility and Transparency

Came in super late (darn traffic - left home, 30 mi away, 2 hours before getting here)

Caught the end of Erik Mitchell and Edward M. Corrado - they did a survey of JASIST authors and the responses were bleak. Suprising only like 25% or so had an IRB? Few shared data or had data management plans. Few shared code. Few really did that much about open access.

John M. Budd: A retraction walks into the bar. Bartender says: what will you have? Retraction says: Nevermind. and doesn't leave the bar.

Retractions - lots. And lots of things that had been cited, the citations were substantive. Marking of retractions is poor. Work to be done and presented next year

Audience discussion:

Q: Is anxiety an issue? some researchers have been attacked for sharing data.

A: Well in qualitative, it isn't appropriate to really talk about reproducible

A: We didn't see this anxiety in our work, but maybe a qualitative study would

Q: Question about the result that said lack of consent was a reason not to share. Audience member was member of a project that had to go through specific consent forms to see if data could be used for new protocols.

(fwiw, I did actually reveal names of my participants in my dissertation research but I went back and re-asked consent giving examples of how it would be done)

Q: IRBs or research sites requiring destruction of data

Q: Works at a DOE national lab -and they have strict requirements for DMPs. Isn't that going to be more the norm now with funder requirements

A: Not evenly held accountable. Different agencies coming online at different points.

A: Someone from DOT - we're just now having funding calls that have this requirement. There are new requirements for PII data and DMP. They are part of the compliance chain at the National Transportation Library. They haven't gotten any data back in for it yet. It will be that you will be ineligible for future funding if you do not provide identifiers (this might be part of one contract broken into blocks). Many if not most large funders of science - Gates, Wellcome, other funders requiring.

Q: if I do a qualitative study of how people like riding buses, would the interview transcripts be deposited and available?

A: Yes - but probably some sort of de-identification, compilation, anonymization, etc. (I added this part).
