The topic of the third in a series of ICSTI webinars, organized in partnership with NISO, is ’Enabling Innovations for Researcher Workflows and Scholarly Communication’
Date and Time : Wednesday, 26 October 2016 - 10-00am (Eastern US Time)
Duration : 90 minutes
Presenters : Jeroen Bosman, Scholarly Communications and Geoscience Librarian, Utrecht University ; Bianca Kramer, Life Sciences and Medicine Librarian, Utrecht University ; David Mellor, Project Manager, Journal and Funder Initiatives, Center for Open Science ; Cameron Neylon, Professor of Research Communications, Centre for Culture and Technology, Curtin University, and Alex Viggio, Associate Director, Faculty Information System, University of Colorado, Boulder.
Digital network technologies have driven the globalisation of the scientific community and transformed the way in which research is conducted and communicated.
This webinar focuses on the usage of the innovative tools that have been developed to facilitate information sharing and collaboration in this changing environment. Presenters will address the need for consensus among stakeholders in differing scientific communities on the principles needed to guide implementation positively to impact research practice, openness, efficiency and reproducibility, and quality of outcomes.

The topic of the second in a series of ICSTI webinars, organized in partnership with NISO, is ’Text and Data Mining : The Way Forward as Seen by the Library, Publisher and Researcher Communities’
Date and Time : Thursday 30 June 2016 - 10-00am (Eastern US Time)
Duration : 90 minutes
Presenters : Jeremy Frey, Professor of Physical Chemistry and Head of Computational Systems Chemistry, University of Southampton - Michael Levine-Clark, Dean and Director of Libraries, University of Denver - Ellen Finnie, Head of Scholarly Communications and Collections Strategy, MIT Libraries - Audrey McCulloch, Chief Executive, Association of Learned, Professional and Society Publishers, and Director of the Publishers Licensing Society.
Text and Data Mining (TDM) facilitates the discovery, selection, structuring and analysis of large numbers of documents/sets of data, enabling the visualisation of results in new ways to support innovation and the development of new knowledge. In both academe and commercial contexts TDM is increasingly recognised as a means to extract, re-use and leverage additional value from published information, by linking concepts, addressing specific questions, and creating efficiencies. But TDM in practice is not straightforward. TDM methodology and use are fast changing but not matched by the development of enabling policies.
This webinar provides a summary review of where we are today with TDM as seen from the perspective of the researcher, library and licensing publisher communities.

The first in a series of ICSTI webinars, organized in close collaboration with NISO, will address the topic : ’A Pathway from Open Access and Data Sharing to Open Science in Practice’
Date and Time : Tuesday 10 November 2015 - 10-00am (Eastern Daylight Time USA)
Duration : 90 minutes
Presenters : Professor Geoffrey Boulton, University of Edinburgh, Royal Society, and President of CODATA – UK, and José Cotta, Head of Unit Digital Science, DG CONNECT, European Commission – Belgium
Moderator : Jerry Sheehan, Vice President ICSTI, Assistant Director for Policy Development at the National Library of Medicine, currently on secondment to the Office of Science and Technology Policy
About the Webinar
The progressive acceptance and implementation of open access has paved the way for new possibilities in the creation, authentication, organization, manipulation and preservation of data and information, and its broader access, sharing and communication. Momentum towards the achievement of the vision of the International Council for Science of a ‘world where excellence in science is reality’ is gathering pace.
From their respective standpoints as practicing scientist and policy maker and research funder, Geoffrey Boulton and José Cotta will present their current thinking on the behavioral and technical issues to address, and the barriers to confront, in order to convert the vision of open science in practice.
