- Identify much of the research that has already been undertaken in an area
- Replicate analyses of data
- Avoid duplicating analysis that has already bee done
- Identify cross-disciplinary implications and uses of the data
The bibliography is also valuable for studying data as intellectual output. It allows investigators to
- Study how data resources are used
- Conduct citations analyses
- Investigate the life cycle of data
- Learn more about methodological issues, some of which are covered solely in the published literature
