We are facing a deluge of data. Improvements in technology and research methods have considerable increased the amount of data collected by scientific experiments. An example for this evolution of scientific instruments and methods is the development in the domain of depth measurement. For years this was a data poor science. The depth of the sea was calculated by using a hand lead or later a simple echo sounder. Today things have changed. Modern multi-beam echo sounders produce a detailed and also data rich height profile of the sea floor.
But these developments rise a new question, how to deal with the bulk of data created by all these experiments? Scientific data is too valuable to just be used once. On the other hand, new research methods, which developed during the last years and which Jim Gray referred to as the fourth paradigm of science, base on the reuse of huge amounts of data from other experiments. So new ways and methods have to be discovered to alleviate the reuse of data and to get it out of the local repositories into public available archives. PubFlow is our suggestion for such a tool.
