On Wednesday evening, we hosted the eighth installment of the monthly Science Online NYC (SoNYC) discussion series. The topic for debate this month was, “Thinking Digital: Giving your research more reach (and making sure others can find it)” and the panel featured:
- 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 Norton is the library scholar at the Biodiversity Heritage Library at Woods Hole’s Marine Biological Laboratory.
As is our usual format, following short introductory talks from the panelists, we invited attendees present in person at Rockefeller University or watching online to take part in a wider discussion.
