Clinical Trial Data Sharing and Reproducibility

December 7, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

In January, the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors proposed requiring that investigators make de-identified trial data available six months after publication as a precondition of consideration. Many data scientists support the policy and champion even more stringent standards as a means to accelerate scientific advances, tackle the problem of irreproducibility, and fulfill moral obligations to research participants. However, numerous trialists have raised potential challenges in the push toward greater data sharing, including researchers analyzing data with which they are not intimately familiar, diminished incentives for primary data collection, and shared data usability.
The ongoing debate has exposed a number of important questions regarding the ownership of publicly and privately funded trial data, our ethical duties to trial participants, and the possible benefits and harm of rapid widespread data sharing.
