Downloading Supplementary Data from Published Manuscripts

Downloads data supplementary materials from manuscripts, using papers' DOIs as references. Facilitates open, reproducible research workflows: scientists re-analyzing published datasets can work with them as easily as if they were stored on their own computer, and others can track their analysis workflow painlessly. The main function suppdata() returns a (temporary) location on the user's computer where the file is stored, making it simple to use suppdata() with standard functions like read.csv().
