Sharing data, then, is not only a way to improve the reproducibility and robustness of the science that is taking place today, but can drive new science for tomorrow. Given that we today cannot predict how valuable a given set of data will one day prove to be, there is a strong argument to be made that leaving data unshared is an impediment to the scientists of the future. Indeed, we can envision a time in which, far from being a disruptive innovation, data sharing is seen as a normal and essential part of the scientific process, much the way we see peer-review.
