Dear all,
Many thanks for your participation in our session last week!
In case you missed it, you can find the collaborative notes of the session here:
The collaborative notes contain a brief overview of the session, as well as links to the materials that were used such as the slides from Joel Benn’s presentation (A national cross-discipline service for physical sample identifiers) and the recording of Anita Bandrowski’s talk on RRID: resource identification and deposition in repositories and the role of journals.
Unfortunately, the recording of our session is not yet available on Juno.
Your contributions would be really valued in the follow up actions from the plenary session:
1. Please contact Anita Bandrowski (***@***.***) if you would like to be involved in the working group on how to encourage good behaviours in the scientific literature.
2. If you would like to contribute to the infographic/FAQ flyer on physical samples (based on the 23 things output), please contact Esther (***@***.***) or write your name/email address in the google doc in the table on page 3/4 of the collaborative notes. Please do so before the 12th of May, after which anyone that indicated interested will be contacted on how to proceed further.
3. If you would like to be involved in the webinar series or if you have a case study that you would like to present on, please contact Esther (***@***.***) or post a brief summary of what you would like to discuss/present in the google doc on page 5.
