UPDATE: All presentations from 2020 Vision are online at http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/science/2020-vision
On the afternoon of the 21st of April the Radcliffe Science Library will be running an informal workshop at Keble College to update graduate students and researchers about Open-Access polices.
- Do you know how HEFCE rules for the 2020 Ref are changing and how these will affect you?
- Are you familiar with RCUK, Wellcome and other funder’s policies on Open Access?
- Have you heard about the tools available at Oxford to help you comply with new Open Access regulations?
- Do you know about services such as arXiv, PubMed Central and Zenodo and how they can help archive your research data and publications to meet funder requirements?
If your answer to any of these questions is ‘no’ then you should book yourself a place! You’ll find out the answers to the questions above and have the opportunity to quiz invited representatives from organisations closely involved in Open Access policy creation and implementation.
A full programme for the workshop can be found here – http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/science/2020-vision
You can book a place on-line here – www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/2020-vision-making-your-research-output-compliant-registration-15830858524
This event is being sponsored by the FOSTER Programme (www.fosteropenscience.eu/project/)
Scientific research projects are underpinned by data built up during the project or collected together from previous research. In many cases this data will provide the evidence for the conclusions drawn from the project and will form the basis of theses and scientific papers. But what happens to all this data when the thesis has been submitted or the paper published? Would other researchers benefit from being able to access the data you have collected? How will the data be stored safely for the future?
Questions such as these have become increasingly important for researchers as funders increasingly expect investigators to submit detailed data management plans with funding applications. Other funders are placing more requirements on researchers to ensure that their data is preserved and properly described for future reuse and sharing.
Good research data management will help you organise the data you are creating in your project and help you with practical activities such as backing up data securely, handling licensing or ethical issues that arise with the data you are collecting and arranging the long-term archiving of your data in a suitable repository.
Oxford University is providing information, training and infrastructure to ensure that researchers can plan their data management activities and ensure that data is accessible during and after your project. An updated and improved Research Data Management website has been created which you can use to –
- Learn about data management
- Locate useful tools and guides for different data management tasks
- Find training courses on data managment
- Contact the Research Data Management support team with any questions
You can visit the new site here – http://researchdata.ox.ac.uk/
Research data management services and information at Oxford University are being provided through a collaboration of IT Services, Research Services and the Bodleian Libraries.
