Event Details

Only a fraction of the things that scientists do in the lab ever see the light of day in a formal publication. Negative data, new tools, and public data sources rarely merit an independent paper, making it tough to receive credit for your work. Even when the work leads to a paper, it can be tough to accurately credit everyone's contributions, or make the underlying data available to the scientific community.

This month's panel will discuss new tools like Figshare, a repository for negative data, and the ORCID author identifier, which can be used to associate any form of digital publication to your research record. It will also feature two librarians who will discuss how research libraries can help you store and share your information, and find the materials made available by others.

 

Panelists:

Mark Hahnel is the developer of Figshare.

Carol Feltes is the head librarian at Rockefeller University.

Veronique Kiermer is an Executive Editor and Head of Researcher Services at Nature, and a member of the ORCID steering committee.

Cathy Nortion is the library scholar at the Biodiversity Heritage Library at Woods Hole's Marine Biological Laboratory.
