2017 SSP 39th Annual Meeting
Concurrent 1D: Research Data Policies…
Publishing research data and linking the outputs to scholarly literature has many benefits, but it still remains a new concept to many. There have been developments in research data policy for journals and funders but to have significant impact, policies require changes in publishing workflows and resources. Publishers and editors are doing a variety of things to support data sharing but questions remain. Are they doing the right things and how effective have they been? How does one enable the publishing of research data? What steps should be taken to work with a particular community? How impactful have efforts been? What data should be published and when? What are the costs of data policy enforcement?
A panel of data experts, representing repositories, journal editors and publishers, will discuss the benefits of linking research data and scholarly literature and provide practical examples of data policies and implementation. Presentations will cover: the role of the publisher and editor, tools and resources to make effective data policy, practical guidance on data citations, working with repositories, reviewing data, long term archiving and manuscript checking, and more.
