The Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences established a laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor in 1890. The first paper, published by Davenport here in 1892 was “The germ-layers in Bryozoan Buds”. During the height of the Carnegie Institution of Washington era, 29 papers were produced in 1918 by CSHL’s 53 researchers. In 2010 alone 221 papers were published by a community that has grown to 317 Ph.D.s, MD.s, and other researchers. The full history of CSHL author’s publications is available through the CSHL Authors' Publications Database. The database provides abstracts and full text, where available.
Recently added publications include:
The Research Data Symposium was held at Columbia University Feb 27th 2013.
The day long symposium covering important issues such as Data Management, Curation, Sharing, and Analysis.
The intention of the symposium was to bring together the data generators with those tasked with managing and preserving the data for future use.
The symposium featured interesting talks from open access advocates like Peter Murray-Rust and Victoria Stodden as well as panel discussions including Heather Piwowar from ImpactStory and Mark Hahnel from FigShare.
The entire symposium was recorded and is available.
The posters are also available via Columbia's Instutional Repository.

In reponse to a "We the people" petition to increase public access to the results of tax payer funded research, the Office of Science and Technology Policy recently issued a directive requiring all Federal agencies with expenditures on research and development projects of more than 100 million dollars a year to make the published results of the research that they fund freely available to the public after 1 year and to require the researchers conducting the work to have increased accountibility and management of the data that is generated.
This new directive aligns the US more closely with what has occured in the UK with the Government adopting the recommendations of the National Working Group on Expanding Access to Published Research Findings (the Finch Group) and directing the Research Councils UK and others to develop policies to fund open access to research findings.
The movement towards open access for data appears to be gaining ground.
