D'ANGELO DEL CAMPO, Manuel et al. Published bioanthropological information from Patagonia Austral. An approach from current tendency of data sharing. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.1, pp.153-170. ISSN 1852-060X.

Abstract The technical advancements that took place during the last decades have influenced directly the sciences, allowing for the utilization of new research tools that have consequently generated new knowledge. These new developments have bettered the communications and access to information across the globe. In this new framework, data sharing arises as a global trend for the free access to data produced during research investigations. This trend is not well developed for Patagonia Austral. However, before sharing data, it is necessary to know what information can and want to be shared among scientists. To gain a better understanding of what information is available for Patagonia Austral that would allow the implantation of data sharing for this region, we reviewed some the major journals in which articles on archaeological human remains from Southern Patagonia are published. Specifically, we consider 88 articles and evaluated 18 variables. The results showed that, although the data presented in the original papers are correct, the contextual information of those data is not presented accordingly. This contextual information is known as metadata. It is necessary that the community of bio-anthropologists lay the groundwork to standardize the information that would be shared in the future, with spatial attention to the metadata.

Keywords : Patagonia Austral; data sharing; bioanthropology; human remains.
