Event Details

open-access-logoWhile libraries have been managing open access repositories of articles for more than a decade, making research data openly accessible presents new challenges and opportunities.  Similarly, open access journal publishing is an established publishing model, while models for openly accessible data repositories are still emerging. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Memorandum has increased awareness of the interconnectedness of data and the resulting articles on increasing access to the results of federally funded scientific research.

Effectively connecting research data with the resulting articles is necessary to fully realize the benefits of open access articles and open data.  A panel of experts will examine emerging practices for libraries, potential new collaborations, considerations of how to fund the storage and preservation of data, and options for making the connections between articles and data to fully realize the potential to expand open access to research.

Join SPARC and ACRL for their Annual Forum at ALA Midwinter. For more details, visit the SPARC website.
