Summary Confused about open science? Want to know more about publishing your data for credit?
Open science and sharing research data are big trends in scientific publishing. Researchers are encouraged to share data, however, the incentives and mechanisms for sharing data effectively are often unclear.
For open data to help increase scientific reproducibility and reliability it must be more than just available – it should be understandable, reusable and, ideally, validated through peer review.
Data journals and data articles have emerged as new types of publication to help address these issues. Inviting Dr. Varsha Khodiyar, Data Curation Editor of Scientific Data, we invite you to a seminar to learn about Scientific Data, a data journal established in 2014 by the Nature Publishing Group.
