What's Covered:

Open data initiatives continue to create new scholarly research opportunities through the development of transparent policies, practices and partnerships. This dynamic is evolving via collaboration between research institutes, governments, publishers and the public at large, all of which are promoting a transformative environment that cuts across industries and fields of study for exploration and discovery.

Much of this the momentum behind the open data movement comes from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy's 2013 memorandum, "Expanding Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research." In addition, the UK already has implemented firm data archiving policies and mandates.

To this end, clear benefits of open data sharing are emerging - increased visibility of scholarly work, safe storage for data through archiving, the optimization of publicly funded research, and the benefit to the public's well-being through more rapid advancement of scientific research and discovery.

Yet challenges and risks need to be addressed to ensure open data's future, including privacy concerns, complying with complex funder mandates, managing reuse policies and ensuring responsible researcher interpretation of shared data.

To explore these issues in-depth, NFAIS is hosting a two-part virtual workshop, to be held on Thursday, June 16 and Monday, June 20, that will address current open data mandates and models by a diverse range of expert presenters from leading universities, open source application developers, publishers and researchers.

Who should attend this two-part NFAIS Workshop: scholarly researchers, publishers, librarians, government agency officials, non-profit scholarly society and foundation staff, and information services consultants.

Special Note: This is an NFAIS Virtual Workshop taking place in two parts - just register once to attend both events!
