In their contribution Hornikx and Batenburg (2016) raise a number of issues related to the transparency and integrity of quantitative research in particular. In this contribution two additional issues are raised that may hinder the accessibility and accountability of our research results. One is related to studies based on the use of confidential materials – especially in the context of qualitative studies – and the other to the implications of the new ‘meldplicht datalekken’ (the duty to report data leaks) that has been introduced in the Netherlands per January 1, 2016, as part of the Personal Data Protection Act. Together they demonstrate the limits of our strive for scientific transparency.
