Standing on the Digits of Giants : Research data, preservation and innovation

8 mars 2016 - Londres, Royaume-Uni

Publié le 11 janvier 2016, par Thérèse Hameau


Access is not a one time event, it’s an ongoing process. This seminar will examine emerging trends in scholarly communication from the perspective of the publication and long-term access to the scholarly record. This includes outputs not traditionally included within the primary scientific canon such as metadata, software and research data.

The academic community has been quick to adopt digital technology. Many of the technologies we now take for granted derive from the desire of the researchers to communicate more and better, the need for students to learn more flexibly and the need for teachers to guide more assiduously. Publishers and librarians have responded to meet these changing demands and the supply chain connecting researchers has been transformed in the last twenty years. This generation has seen a revolution in the scholarly record and scholarly communication. It’s mostly been for the good but challenges remain.


The day will encourage the exchange of ideas and discuss possible solutions or collaborations to issues. Participants will have clarity on the various moving parts that make up the digital research record, which will enable them to develop relevant policies and support for authors, editors and other clients. They will have increased knowledge and access to networks that will support scenario-planning and product development going forward.
