Open Access Research Data Sharing: Why does it matter? How does it benefit you?
Date: 10 March 2017 (Friday)
Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm
Venue: LT6 (NS2-02-05), Nanyang Technological University
About the talk:

The NTU Research Data Policy was launched in April 2016 and it encourages open access research data sharing. More and more funding agencies and journals are starting to have similar expectations. Why does this matter to you as a researcher?

Mr Kevin Ashley, Director of Digital Curation Centre (UK), will be speaking on data sharing trends and practices across disciplines in different countries and institutions at this seminar. Hear from him about the positive impact of working openly and publishing data, including boosts to citation rates for associated journal articles. Also learn how re-searchers allocate resources for open access data sharing. You will have the opportunity to ask him why it matters to you and how you can realise the benefits of open research.
