Andrew Schrank on DA-RT: what counts as cited data? what’s the benefit of replication?

Andrew Schrank’s short essay says DA-RT advocates: 1) need to be more clear about what counts as “cited data” (“cleaned and coded survey data or field notes? Actual survey or interview transcripts? Audio or video tapes of the surveys or interviews themselves? Or something else entirely?”); and 2) do a better job defending the value of replication, which really should mean “the re-collection as well as the re-analysis of data,” for there are other means of insuring validity and social control in science.
