Because good research needs good data

The Now and Future of Data Publishing

22 May 2013 |

In conjunction with a range of partners including BioSharing, DataONE, Dryad, the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers, Wiley-Blackwell, and others, the Jisc Managing Research Data programme is organising a one-day symposium on The Now and Future of Data Publishing.

There are a growing number of initiatives around data publication and these respond in part to changing research practices but also to changing policies and advocacy of more open research. 

The symposium will provide an overview of the current landscape, interrogate the apparent benefits for researchers and research more generally and examine visions of the future of data publication. Above all, what sort of data publication will most engage researchers and most benefit research?


The event will be open to over 100 participants, comprising key stakeholder groups: researchers, research funders, policy makers, journal editors, publishers, data curators.

The day will feature a number of provocative and inspiring keynotes. In addition, there will be panel sessions addressing key themes around data publication.

Further details and a full programme will be available soon on the event website
