Hello all -

Thank you for this broad-ranging and fascinating suite of examples. I started going down the rabbit hole of looking at them.

Anatoly Volynets asked me how I came to this, and I admit it's not a project but part of a paper. I was part of a COST Action on peer review (peere.org<http://peere.org>) and we authored a piece on the need for data sharing in journal peer review. We've received feedback from the journal Nature and the editor asked if there were examples of competitors sharing data (the editor found it highly unlikely!), which is what we were asking of scientific publishers. Since research infrastructures and scholarly practices cross over in my wheelhouse, I offered to track down examples - I had a few, but not many, clearly.

If anyone is interested in what we wrote, we have a preprint at SocArxiv: https://osf.io/preprints/socarxiv/sr6eg/

After looking at all these links, I'm wondering if there IS a project in it.

Thank you!
