Publishing research is crucial for the scientific community and general public, especially as journals provide a convenient source of peer-reviewed literature which can help inform new research and ensure reproducibility. However, traditional publication models can be inaccessible due to paywalls and expensive publishing fees. Open Access publishing and FAIR (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability) data guidelines have been widely accepted in the chemical sciences field to increase the availability of research. Unfortunately, obstacles ranging from finding an equitable approach to determining liability for publishing fees have hindered widespread implementation of these practices.
Join the Chemical Sciences Roundtable next week, on August 1, 2023, from 3:30pm to 5:00pm ET, for a webinar on open access and FAIR data in the chemical sciences. This webinar will provide an overview of open access publishing and FAIR data principles, as well as discuss challenges and solutions specific to the chemical sciences for equitable implementation. All members of the public are welcome to register to attend. For more information, please visit the event webpage.
Leah McEwen will be presenting on the IUPAC Case Study and WorldFAIR Chemistry project
