I find in my reviewing activities that the last few years I've encountered more and more papers that are "data dumps". They tend to be papers with lots of data but very little analysis, discussion, or insight. The authors love to present data, but the actual novelty and importance of the work is unclear due to the lack of analysis. I suppose this is in part due to the explosion of scientific work and publications.
Is there a name for this type of paper? Has anyone else noticed this trend?
