Join an online discussion about data use and access and take our reader poll.

In the 11 February 2011 issue, Science joins with colleagues from Science Signaling, Science Translational Medicine, and Science Careers to provide a broad look at the issues surrounding the increasingly huge influx of research data. This collection of articles highlights both the challenges posed by the data deluge and the opportunities that can be realized if we can better organize and access the data.

The Science cover (left) features a word cloud generated from all of the content from the magazine's special section.

Science is making access to this entire collection FREE (simple registration is required for non-subscribers).
