The University of Arizona is celebrating Open Access Week by sponsoring this fascinating program that features UA researchers.
Many funding agencies and journal publishers require researchers to share data produced during the course of their research. When researchers share their data, other researchers can reuse it to answer new questions, opening up new interpretations and discoveries. Not all research data can be made openly available, especially if the research involves people. Completely open data is not necessarily in the best interest of all involved. What are the issues involved? How do researchers handle the differences between competing interests? Our speakers come from a variety of disciplines and will address these issues from their unique perspectives.
Refreshments will be served.
