Data Repositories: The Answer That Actually Came With A Question, Lisa Johnston Apr 2016

Data Repositories: The Answer That Actually Came With A Question, Lisa Johnston

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Data repositories: the answer that actually came with a question. Funders, journal publishers, and disciplinary societies recognize the benefits of long-term access to valuable data that could validate results, increase scholarly democracy, or possibly lead to future discoveries. With this in mind, a majority of research now being done in academia is subject to data sharing requirements that the underlying data be publicly accessible, citable, and persevered. As many subject-based data repositories help make this happen, particularly for computing-intensive disciplines with shared infrastructure, such as high-energy physics or real-time climate monitoring, who will manage the "long-tail" of smaller or multi-disciplinary ...


Informationist: Informationist Breakout Session, Leah Honor Apr 2016

Informationist: Informationist Breakout Session, Leah Honor

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

In this session Leah will discuss her experiences working on an NIH Supplement for Informationist Services grant, what was accomplished, and what she learned along the way. Within the psychiatric neuroimaging research community, data and resource sharing have become accepted as standard, but issues related to attribution and citing data in novel research are still hindering meaningful reuse. This project aimed to illustrate a system of data identification that would not only allow for proper citation of whole datasets, but maintain the chain of attribution in derived and remixed datasets, allowing for a more complete picture of research impact and ...

Bu’S Study Group: Partners In Learning, Tom Hohenstein

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Objective: Building awareness of new library services on any campus can be difficult, especially when these services are deemed “non-traditional.” To help us overcome this challenge, the Boston University Libraries’ partnered with the Mozilla Science Lab to launch a new initiative called “Study Group” on campus. This poster describes Mozilla’s community building philosophy, the initial results of this partnership, and the technologies we have used.

Methods: The Mozilla Science Lab launched its Study Group initiative during the spring of 2015 to help researchers practice open science through community-led, technology-driven workshops. Group members lead each workshop in an informal, approachable ...
