This is good news (and makes me pay more attention to Academia.edu than I had in the past). "Today Academia.edu is announcing that users can embed data-sets and code onto their Academia.edu profile pages. Data-sets and code can be attached to papers, or can be uploaded in a stand-alone way." Why is this significant? "Currently 75% of the world's scientific data is not shared. It hasn't been there because the distribution platforms haven't been there." It's something paper publications just can't do, ands which the subscription-based online publications haven't done.
