Dr. N.A.J.M. (Nico) Sommerdijk, associate professor in the department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry of Eindhoven University of Technology, recently published a paper about his research in Science, together with others.

He explains why Science wasn't able to publish the underlying research data of his paper and why he published his data open access with the 3TU.Datacentrum (http://data.3tu.nl). Now: 'Everybody can access [the data set] directly with one click of your computer mouse. People may use the same data set for things that we were not looking for and so generate new science with the same scientific data set.'
