We invite you to register for the 2015 Dryad Community Meeting, which will take place on May 27th from 8:30am-4:00pm in Washington, DC. The theme of this year’s meeting is “Taking a Closer Look at Data”, featuring a keynote presentation from Brian Nosek of the Center for Open Science.
The Community Meeting brings together researchers, librarians, publishers, funders and other individuals and organizations with a stake in the preservation and availability of the scientific and medical data associated with the published literature.
The program includes:
- Dryad101, an introduction to the Dryad Digital Repository, including an overview of recent and upcoming developments
- A Community Perspectives Forum in which partner journals and member organizations have an opportunity to share their experiences with data publishing.
- The annual Dryad Business Meeting during which stakeholders can have a say in the governance of the nonprofit organization.
- An Emerging Issues panel discussion all about the concept of “data review”. This is an opportunity to hear about the experiences of the community with various forms of data review and to consider whether and how data review may be more widely adopted by Dryad’s community in the future to improve the value of data for reuse.
Our keynote speaker, Dr. Brian Nosek is Professor, Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia and Director, Center for Open Science. The Center for Open Science is a nonprofit technology startup that aims to increase openness, integrity, and reproducibility of scientific research. He is also co-founder of the widely known Project Implicit.
