Open Access Week 2018

DanielVan Strien5 October 2018

As part of open access week 2018 (22nd-28th October 2018), UCL Library services have organised a series of events covering open access, REF, RPS, data sharing and Open Science. These events include training sessions, film screenings and drop-ins.

The Research Data Support team will be running a lunchtime session on the most effective ways to share your research data.

The first half of the session will give researchers an introduction to the principles and practicalities involved in data sharing. It will also seek to outline the principles of FAIR data and how this relates to the production and use of data over the research lifecycle.

During the second half of the session, UCL’s Research Data Management team and Open Access team will host a drop-in to help answer any questions about sharing research data, Open Access Publishing, RPS or Open Science.

This session will take place on the 25th of October between 13.00-14.00 in the Common Ground, Institute of Advanced Studies, South Wing, UCL Main Building (www.ucl.ac.uk/maps/south-wing).

An Eventbrite listing is available but you don’t need to register to attend.

Full listings and further details of all the events organised as part of open access week at UCL can be found on the open access blog.

Event at QMUL – SES Open: Harnessing FAIR Data Symposium, 3 September 2018

SES Open:  Harnessing FAIR Data Symposium

Harnessing FAIR Data (3 September 2018, 13:00 – 17:00) focuses on researchers who employ or are seeking to use data in their work. FAIR is a set of guiding principles to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. In this thematic context we aim to better understand the cross-disciplinary practice of sourcing, using and managing data and its associated implications, such as ownership, standards and metadata, and access and licensing. Experienced speakers from around the UK will come together to explore FAIR data and services, and a panel session will help to identify key questions that researchers face when considering using data in research.
