FAIR Island: Networked, Machine-Actionable DMPs for Open Science

Date: 
26 Aug 2021 - 19:00 to 20:00 UTC

The FAIR Island project examines the impact of implementing optimal research data management policies and requirements, affording us the unique opportunity to look at the outcomes of strong data policies at a working field station. Building on the Island Digital Ecosystem Avatars (IDEA) Consortium (see Davies et al. 2016), the FAIR Island Project leverages collaboration between the University of California Gump Station, located on Moorea in French Polynesia, and Tetiaroa Society, which operates a newly established field station located on the atoll of Tetiaroa.

FAIR Principles for Research Software (FAIR4RS WG)

Date: 
23 Sep 2021 - 17:00 to 18:00 UTC

The RDA FAIR for Research Software (FAIR4RS) WG recognized the importance of software as a scholarly output and the necessity to review and adapt the FAIR data guiding principles (Wilkinson et al.) to research software. This webinar will present the history of how the Working Group evolved, an overview of the recently published group output FAIR principles for Research Software, and the challenges and limitations identified when creating the principles for FAIR Research Software.

How to get Attention for Research Project Outputs

Date: 
21 Oct 2021 - 15:00 to 16:00 UTC

Recording coming soon

If you work within the research community (principal investigator, professor, researcher, data scientist, manager, etc.), you know there is a huge amount of commitment and expertise required to move projects from inception to completion.  Multi-tasking, shifting priorities, and resource constraints are common, with the focus frequently being on meeting deadlines and moving on to the next project.  Capturing attention from colleagues all over the world, who have the power to act on these insights and effect change, is a whole other job – and can be as large as formulating the group’s position, to begin with. This webinar will offer strategies for getting outputs into the right hands and promoting engagement.

This webinar is designed for the Chairs and Members of the RDA Working and Interest Groups, but anyone interested in this topic is invited and welcome to attend.

Decomposing Observable Property Descriptions into Machine-Readable Components

Date: 
28 Jul 2021 - 15:00 to 16:00 UTC

The RDA I-Adopt Working Group presents the "Decomposing Observable Property Descriptions into Machine-Readable Components to Increase Interoperability Across Data Standards" webinar.  This webinar introduces using the Interoperable Descriptions of Observable Property Terminology (I-ADOPT) framework for representing components of observable properties, also called variables, in a machine-readable format to allow for easier mapping between dedicated terminologies.

RRIDs: A Way to Track Samples Through the Scientific Literature

Date: 
10 Aug 2021 - 19:00 to 20:00 UTC

The second webinar in this series will outline how RRIDs (Research Resource ID’s), persistent identifiers used to track key biological resources, i.e., "physical samples" for the biomedical field, successfully drove improvements in resource identification. It will highlight lessons learned, and how any research field could learn from the challenges that the RRID project faced in implementing RRID’s. Particularly the successful adoption of RRIDs by publishers and the research community is of interest to anyone interested in persistent identifiers.
