Towards a Common Deposit API (Dataverse Example), at Dataverse Community Meeting Pre-Meeting Workshop, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, Tuesday, June 9, 2015

Presented by: Elizabeth Quigley and Phil Durbin.

We will discuss the good parts and the challenges of this approach. Additionally this presentation will lead into the Panel Discussion consisting of various stakeholders from publishers, domain and general repositories, funding agencies, researchers, and industry.

Increasing openness and connections throughout the scientific workflow, at IASSIST Data Conference, June 2-5, 2015, Minneapolis, MN, Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Presented by: Elizabeth Quigley

This requires at least two changes to the present culture.  One change is conceptual - embracing that progress is made more rapidly via identifying errors in current beliefs than by finding support for current beliefs.  Such a shift could reduce confirmation bias, unproductive theory testing, and the blinding desire to be right. The other change is practical - science will benefit from improving technologies to document and connect the entire lifecycle of Read more about Increasing openness and connections throughout the scientific workflow
