Relevant to the ongoing discussion, I have posted my 30 pages of notes
on the YPM Torosaurus specimens via figshare.com. This includes
sketches, measurements, and other observations. My hope is that the
data will be useful for other folks out there who may not have access
to the original specimens. I also hope that other researchers, across
paleontology, will consider digitizing and making available their own
notes (within certain bounds – I would never suggest someone should be
mandated to post their own unpublished data from an ongoing project!).

Now I am not a big note taker, I usually take photos and have a little text file… that could be edited easily into a similar thing. Way to go!
Very many thanks, Andy – I just wish you’d not done this for a stinkin’ ceratopsian, but for a proper sauropodomorph!
