Philosophy of Science 70 (5):1508-1517 (2003)
This paper offers an account of data manipulation in scientific experiments. It will be shown that in many cases raw, unprocessed data is not produced, but rather a form of processed data that will be referred to as a data model. The language of data models will be used to provide a framework within which to understand a recent debate about the status of data and data manipulation. It will be seen that a description in terms of data models allows one to understand cases in which data acquisition and data manipulation cannot be separated into two independent activities.
