Careful planning for managing your research data has never been more important! Find out more about how UNB Libraries’ Research Data Management Services can help. In this session, we’ll explain how research data are different from other datasets and discuss issues, as well as opportunities for data sharing and dissemination. We’ll highlight new and upcoming Tri-Agency requirements regarding research data management planning and data deposit and provide a brief overview of the role of Portage Network, a national initiative to develop research data management services and infrastructure.

Issues in Scholarly Publishing

Scholarly Publishing is increasingly evolving. Navigating these shifts can be overwhelming. Researchers are being asked to consider open access. Bad faith publishers and vanity presses are preying on folks under pressure to publish. Funding bodies are requiring more public access to publications and research data. And, on top of it all, researchers have more ways to connect with their communities of practice than ever before. There are an overwhelming amount of ways to share your work. This session addresses some of these trends in publishing, intellectual property, and scholarly profiles.
