Following the success of last year’s event, Better Science through Better Data (#scidata17) is back – on 25th October 2017 – this year for a day of talks and demos exploring how open research is put into practice.
For this year’s conference, Scientific Data and Springer Nature are again partnering with Wellcome Trust to stage the event, which will cover the benefits, unintended consequences and practicalities of managing and publishing research data.
This will include a focus on the needs of early career researchers, such as data skills, career progression, and good practice for sharing data alongside peer-reviewed publications. We also anticipate showing examples of innovative approaches to data sharing and reuse, and demos of tools and resources available to researchers to help them, and their research community, make the best use of their research data.
The event will involve a number of short “lightning” talks and demos from researchers and students presenting case studies of research data sharing, data reuse and associated tools in action.
