Join NIF Webinar and learn about RRIDs on September 15, 2017!
Want to learn about RRIDs (Research Resource Identifiers)? Join webinar presented by Drs. Anita Bandrowski and Maryann Martone this coming Friday on September 15, 2017!
Here is the announcements from Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF):
Friday, September 15, 2017
Start Time: 11 AM PST / 2 PM EST.
Synopsis: The Resource Identification Portal was created in support of the Resource Identification Initiative, which aims to promote research resource identification, discovery, and reuse. The portal offers a central location for obtaining and exploring Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) - persistent and unique identifiers for referencing a research resource. A critical goal of the RII is the widespread adoption of RRIDs to cite resources in the biomedical literature and other places that reference their generation or use. RRIDs use established community identifiers where they exist, and are cross-referenced in our system where more than one identifier exists for a single resource.
Dr. Anita Bandrowski: Dr. Bandrowski works at the Center of research in biological systems at UCSD on the RRID Initiative and SciCrunch. The goal of Dr. Bandrowski's work is to improve research reproducibility by making sure that key biological resources such as antibodies are identifiable in the scientific literature. Anita works at UCSD on the Neuroscience Information Framework, she is also the Founder and CEO of SciCrunch which provides services for RRIDs
Dr. Maryann Martone: I am a neuroanatomist by training, but for the past decade I have been working in the area of neuroinformatics to increase access to and utilization of neuroscience data. I recently completed my tenure as President of FORCE11, the Future of Research Communications and e-Scholarship, a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming scholarly communication. I was instrumental in coordinating the working group that issued the Joint Declaration of Data Citation and FAIR principles. I recently retired from the University, but am still active as an Emeritus professor and work part time as Director of Biosciences for hypothes.is, a non-profit tech organization developing technology to annotate the web and a founder of SciCrunch.com, a tech startup that is developing data services for scientific publishing.
