"The March 9 Nature reported some disturbing news: 'An editor on the board of a journal published by the prestigious American Psychological Association (APA) has been asked to resign in a controversy over data sharing in peer review.' The controversy arose when psychologist Gert Storm declared that he would review only papers whose data he could see. His declaration is not some whim of a fractious scientist. He is one of a few hundred scientists to proclaim that, starting in 2017, they will begin rejecting papers whose authors refuse to publicly share the underlying data or explain why they can’t. But the story of Gert Storms and other scientists asking for data to be shared is not a new phenomenon."
