Here, PLOS staff explain why the #openaccess movement requires accessibility of not only results but also their sources.
Journal map data is licensed CC BY-NC-SA.
I actually understand both sides of the argument. The academic way of thinking is just so broken to fit in with current reward systems that the following sentence seems reasonable:
"I am not bothering to post the original data here, although they are available. It would set a precedent that I could not keep up with."
If academic research started today, if this was day zero, such a comment would be laughed off as ridiculous. But the rules that guide academia are so ingrained in the minds of researchers, that anything that interrupts this is seen as a 'witch hunt'.
"It is very unlikely I will ever post original data in response to queries on this site unless it changes its rules. I do not want to legitimize this kind of activity in any way, especially since junior researchers may also get caught up in such witch hunts."
It's a sad state of affairs, but its definitely not the fault of the researchers. I'm happy that we live in a time where the funders are taking responsibility and data sharing is rapidly becoming 'the rules'.
