Data Sharing Seminar Series for Societies
You are invited to a new seminar series for societies and the communities they serve to develop a better understanding of the evolving data (and software) sharing research culture with invited speakers who are actively engaged with journals, funders, institutions, repositories, and other research communities on the practices available and challenges yet to be addressed.
Societies have a unique role in bringing awareness of developing practices and supporting the necessary discussions within disciplines to bring their voice to the larger community.
These seminars are monthly for 12 months on the first Friday of each month at 10am ET (15:00 UTC). There will be 2-3 speakers with ~30 minutes of Q&A and discussion specific to society engagement to help with data sharing, credit, transparency and more. Recordings will be made available following the session to help with busy schedules and time zone challenges.
The first seminar is titled “Data Sharing and Citation: How Societies Can Make a Difference”. It will be an overview of the current state with context on why we felt this series would be timely and relevant. See flyer for details.
