Re: Your paper in Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2012
Your recent paper in Food and Chemical Toxicology has elicited unprecedented levels of interest around the world. Yet, invoking lack of space, much of the data were not published.
Accordingly, we the undersigned members of the scientific community, invoke the following clause from Elsevier (http://www.elsevier.com/wps/
Data access and retention
Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.
and urge you to make every effort to release all the data. Given the attention and implications of your work, we appeal that you make every effort to make such a release practicable as soon as possible. Only a full disclosure of the data can quell any uncertainties over the results you published.
