The Scientific Data team are excited to be chairing a half-day conference, aimed at scientific researchers, at Nature Publishing Group’s UK headquarters this autumn. Free tickets for the event, ‘Publishing better science through better data’, have just been released.
The event aims to educate trainee and early career researchers on writing better data-rich papers and grant applications, and aims to increase their chances of publishing in high quality journals. The event will, also, present tools and platforms to assist researchers in managing and disseminating their data and discuss the policies of key organisations and journals on data access and data peer review. The event is aimed at researchers across life, physical, medical and social sciences and will include demonstrations and case studies from across these domains. The event also aims to facilitate interdisciplinary sharing of knowledge and good practice.
The complete conference overview can be found on the Eventbrite conference registration page. Confirmed speakers include Phil Campbell, Editor-in-Chief of Nature, Mark Hahnel, founder of figshare, and Susanna Sansone, University of Oxford and Honorary Academic Editor of Scientific Data.
The conference is taking place on 14th November 2014 from 1pm – 5.30pm and will be followed by networking and drinks. It will be held at the Macmillan (Nature Publishing Group’s parent company) headquarters in London King’s Cross. There are 100 tickets available.
Publishing good science depends on good data. Scientific Data aims to be a centre for excellence on data management and data publication and we’re keen to engage with and support today and tomorrow’s researchers on these issues. ‘Publishing better science through better data’ is therefore exclusively for trainee and current researchers. Attendees will just need to indicate their university or research institution, and role within their organisation, when registering.
