Publishers must continue to innovate and experiment with how the data underlying publications can be made more findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR). Practically this means facilitating access to data during peer review and promoting the use of - and partnering with - data repositories. It also means promoting discipline specific data standards and providing new publication formats and content features, such as data journals and articles.
This webinar will talk about the discoverability and reuse of open research data.
