This is one of the reasons I am happy to see what is going on with the Center for Open Science [0]. The goal of the project is to open up the entire research process, not just create open access to published results. They aim to make open tools supporting the entire research process as well, through the Open Science Framework [1].

One of the benefits of this approach is to provide peer review at each step of the research process. There is also an emphasis on encouraging validation of prior results, rather than having everyone focus on creating new research. This is the focus of the Reproducibility Project [2].

The Center is just getting started, and I sure hope it takes off.
