Recovering Supplementary Materials

image credit: Airborne (Andrew Wyeth, 1996)

Supplementary materials include information that is relevant to a paper but is not included in the paper itself -- underlying datasets, additional materials and methods information, large data tables, multimedia files, etc. If they are not available it becomes much more difficult for others to replicate, or even understand, the research. And yet as researchers move on, and publishers revamp websites, these data can be lost.

Diana Kwon has written about "The Push to Replace Journal Supplements with Repositories" in The Scientist, and Guy Plunkett posted a blog entry about "Zombie Sites and Lost Resources." For several years we have been hosting a copy of their Supplementary Materials for a group of retired colleagues, as well as making some of our own additional data available on this site.

During a recent link check we discovered that supplementary materials for a number of papers from this laboratory were no longer available from the publishers' websites, or at least not discoverable. With this page we are attempting to gather data that has been scattered to the winds and make them available once again.
