+ - UK university researchers must make data available

Submitted by Sara Chan
Sara Chan (138144) writes "In a landmark ruling, the UK's Information Commissioner's Office has decided that researchers at a university must make all their data available to the public. The decision follows from a three-year battle by a mathematician, who wants the data to do his own analysis on it. The university researchers have had the data for many years, and have published several papers using the data, but had refused to make the data available. The data in this case pertains to global warming, but the decision is believed to apply to any field: scientists at universities, which are all public in the UK, can now not claim data from publicly-funded research as their private property. Full story in The Times; more at the BBC, Nature Climate Feedback, and here."
