Webinar: “The what, who, why and how of preprints”

Author: Iratxe Puebla, ASAPBio

Summary: A preprint is a scientific manuscript uploaded and made available by the authors to a public server. They contain data and methodology descriptions and have not yet been accepted by a scientific journal. Because journal publication can be slow and unpredictable, preprints provide a mechanism for rapidly communicating research. However, there are some arguments against it, and unintended consequences are possible. Yet, when well manage, preprints allow scientists direct control of the dissemination of their work.

10:30 – 11:30

Webinar: “The FAIR Data Principles”

Author: Connie Clare, 4TU.ResearchData

Summary: How could we ensure that our research data do not disappear after the research is finished? Good data management in the scientific environment is fundamental to allow easy access, innovation, and reuse by the community after publication. FAIR data are datasets that meet the principles of findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability.

11:30 – 12:30

Round table: “Science communication on social media”

Panel members: TBD

Panelists:

Isabel Mendoza, PhD. Chief Communications Officer. The Global Plant Council

Mary Williams, PhD od Philisophy · Plant Molecular Biology. ASPB

Geraint Parry, PhD of Philosophy · Plant Science. MASC

Summary: Communicating science is gaining more and more importance in the everyday life of researchers. In the age of fake news and misinformation, making science accessible is becoming a shared responsibility of scientific institutions and individual researchers. In this panel, we will jointly discuss examples of how to face (successfully) this particular challenge on social media.
