See the five top reasons to protect your research data.

INFOGRAPHIC: Practice Safe Science

Check out the infographic below to learn about how poor data management affects science.

  • Every year, the amount of research data being generated increases by 30%. Worryingly a massive 80% of scientific data is then lost within two decades. With data output growing rapidly, effective data organization is getting more difficult. At best, poor data management makes experiments hard to replicate and calls findings into question. At worst, papers are retracted, careers are impacted and ultimately science suffers.

    The people at Projects have gathered together some key industry stats into an infographic to show the effect of poor data management in science. Here are the top reasons to protect your scientific data:

Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
