Data Sharing and Citation: How Societies Can Make a Difference

Cousijn, Helena; Stall, Shelley; Baron, Juliane

This seminar is a first in a series to provide societies and their journals with information and resources to help their communities be more knowledgeable and prepared to share data (and software) in a way that is relevant and meaningful for each discipline.  This is a 12-month series.

Following the planned presentation, participants will have ~30 minutes of Q&A and discussion specific to society engagement to improve data sharing, credit, and transparency.
