Research data should be an asset rather than a hindrance to getting published, receiving funding or progressing scientists’ careers. As policies on sharing and managing research data continue to emerge – from research funders, communities and journals – they need to be put into context for researchers preparing their next paper or grant application.
After a rapidly sold out inaugural half-day conference in 2014, ‘Publishing Better Science through Better Data’ returns in 2015 for a full-day event. The conference will explore the practical implications, for early career researchers conducting and publishing their work, of data sharing policies. This will include advice on publishing, advancing careers and include discussion of emerging tools and resources available to researchers to help them, and society, derive maximum benefit from scientific research. The focus of the 2015 conference is on natural sciences and medicine, from academic and industry research perspectives.
Speakers will include representatives from leading journals, research organisations, funding agencies and technology providers. Also, lightning talks and demos will enable conference delegates – researchers and technologists – to present case studies of data sharing and analysis tools in action.
