Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. See program details.

Public Access to Research Data: Guidance, Culture, and Practice

  • This event has passed.


Toby Smith, Vice President for Policy, Association of American Universities (bio)

Philip Tarrant, Research Data Management Officer, Arizona State University (bio)

Toby Smith will share the work of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the Association of American Universities (AAU) on the project Accelerating Public Access to Research Data (APARD). Convening more than 30 institutions to develop national guidance on sharing data for public access, the work will soon culminate in a guide for institution leadership. Toby will share the opportunity societies have in supporting the culture change needed both nationally and internationally for efforts like APARD to be fully adopted.

Philip Tarrant is an active participant, along with his colleagues at Arizona State University, in the APARD project. He is a strong advocate and expert for data management and will share his tactical approach to integrating data management and sharing in ASU’s research practices and grants. APARD is helping support the culture change, but with Philip’s earlier work, ASU is an example of an institution making strategic changes in requirements for data management, investment in resources, and targeted budget guidance for grant that builds in the necessary funds that results in public access requirements.

To register for the series or just this seminar: Registration Here

If you have previously registered for the series, you will receive both an email and outlook invite with the zoom link on or near 22 March. A reminder will be sent out on 1 April as well.

Information on the Seminar Series:
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 through January 2022 held on the first Friday of each month at 10am ET (14:00 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.

Previously held seminars are archived here (slides, recording, chat, and resources). Includes:
5 February: Data Sharing and Citation: How Societies Can Make a Difference with speakers Helena Cousijn, DataCite, and Shelley Stall, AGU.
5 March: Open Science Incentives for Researchers: The Role of Societies and Organizations with speakers Greg Tananbaum, Open Research Funders Group, and Chris Bourg, MIT

Questions: Contact Shelley Stall, [email protected]
in connection with IUPAC, contact CPCDS chair Leah McEwen
