I really appreciate the library's professional review: if Data Bank staff find the formats or organization of my data confusing, my colleagues would, too. On the other hand, my research focuses on the medical literature. Reproducibility is an increasing concern in medicine, and I feel it's my responsibility to make my own research as reproducible as possible.
