RCR Forum: Preparing for Data Publishing: Standards and Disciplinary Repositories(GS714.03)

Research data have value beyond their original purpose and by sharing or "publishing" your data you can support open science, reproducibility, and future innovation. This workshop will explore strategies and best practices for formally publishing your data in a data repository. Topics covered will include new modes of publishing in academia, the use of data and metadata standards to support interoperability and harmonization, an overview of repository options and key features, examples of disciplinary repositories, and data publishing methods to increase the impact of research projects and support the FAIR Guiding Principles (i.e., Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable). Participants will engage in a break-out activity where they will practice finding and assessing data repositories using a general case study. We are also holding an in-person version of this workshop on March 19 (1-3 pm) where participants will engage in a similar exercise but using their own data/research area to explore and assess available repositories. This event is open to non-Duke participants. *RCR Credit is available for attending one of the two workshops in this series. Attending both will not give you credit for both as the lecture content is the same. Contact:
