From the if-only-I’d-thought-of-that department

A recent study in BMC Bioinformatics analyses what becomes of links to supplementary data after publication. Answer: a lot of them vanish. It’s a worthy study with some good suggestions. It’s also a paper that makes you think "jeez, I could have done that".

I wonder if we shouldn’t start some kind of support or self-help group aimed at helping young scientists to identify “easy” opportunities for publication?
