Publication in the sciences is no longer limited to the distribution of printed journals. More and more often, methodological details and additional data are made available as machine-readable supplements to the formal article. The development of data archiving in psychology and the related contributions of Professor of Psychology Jonathan Vaughan were recently described in an article in the Monitor on Psychology (Vol. 40), a publication of the American Psychological Association.

As editor of the Psychonomic Society’s journal Behavior Research Methods, Instrumentation, and Computers, and as the society's archivist, Vaughan began soliciting online materials for the journal's archives in 2003. Data supplements are now a frequent feature of all publications of the Psychonomic Society. “The archive includes a wide range of materials, including raw data from reaction-time studies, pictorial and word stimuli in several languages and computer code for statistical analysis and data acquisition,” according to the Monitor article titled “Set your data free.”
