How to increase the recognition of early-stage research
In the scientific community, early-stage research (including conference posters, metadata, failed results, and raw data) has traditionally been restricted to the offline realm, hidden in printed posters, the pages of lab books, and in files on researchers’ laptops and computers. Scientists make progress in their field, secure tenure, and gain notoriety amongst their peers in large part via the success of their published papers.
