Openness and Transparency: Contributing to the New World of Science Publishing

Sunday, February 19, 2017: 12:00 PM-1:00 PM
Room 207 (Hynes Convention Center)
As a new generation of scientists determines where and how to disseminate their work, it is clear the scientific publishing landscape has changed. Complexities regarding peer review, reproducible research, data management, the growth of predatory journals, and an increase in retractions call for more transparency and openness. A focus on open access by funders and institutions has promoted greater sharing of research results. This workshop will explore how early-career researchers can navigate the scholarly publishing process while staying competitive and generating new science.
