Boston College eScience Events

Friday, May 27th, 2016

Two Upcoming eScience Events – Wednesday, June 8th 2016

For complete information see http://classguides.lib.uconn.edu/RDMR

There is still space available for this FREE event, so register today!

Important: You will indicate which event(s) you intend to participate in on the registration form!

Event information:

Location for both events: Boston College Theology and Ministry Library, Auditorium
(Room 113) Boston College Brighton Campus (
map & directions; free parking is available)

 Morning Event: Open Science Framework (10:00 am – 12:00 pm)

“Demonstration and Discussion”
Speaker: April Clyburne-Sherin, Center for Open Science

 April Clyburne-Sherin is an epidemiologist and research methodologist working to open research through education. She works as the Reproducible Research Evangelist at the Center for Open Science where she conducts workshops on open and reproducible research practices for scientists and students. She will talk about reproducibility of research, open workflows, and The Open Science Framework (OSF), a free, open source web application that connects and supports the research workflow, enabling scientists to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their research.

 Lunch 12:00 pm – 1:20 pm
Participants will have lunch on their own. Options include campus dining locations or at another off-campus restaurant (for suggestions).

Please be aware that all these options require a short walk, so participants may want to bring their own lunch.

 Afternoon Event: The 3rd Research Data Management Roundtable (1:20 pm – 4:00 pm)
“Data Management Instruction: Teaching One-Shot Workshops”

Topic 1: One-shot Instruction 

Topic 2: Sharing anecdotes about your experiences

This is the third in a series of informal roundtable discussions on specific research data management topics. In this Roundtables discussion on one-shot instruction we are expanding to include the sharing of anecdotes about teaching (good, bad, useful, difficult, etc.) and also sharing tools used in teaching (outlines, PowerPoints, exercises, charts or tables, or other useful print or digital objects.) Teaching one-shots are ubiquitous to data management education and offer a plethora of instructive insights and examples! In the first half of the afternoon we will talk in small groups about teaching workshops; then in the second half we will share our experiences and teaching tools with the larger group.

Come with your experiences and bring a tool, handout, presentation, class outlines, or an exercise to showcase!

For questions about registration, contact Tom Hohenstein (tah@bu.edu).

For non-registration questions about the event, please contact Carolyn Mills (carolyn.mills@uconn.edu).

Both events are sponsored by Boston College and the New England e-Science Program.

 We look forward to seeing you all at Boston College, June 8th!

Science Boot Camp

Friday, May 27th, 2016

This is a final reminder that registration closes JUNE 1st for the 2016 New England Science Boot Camp!

Registration for Science Boot Camp is available at the following link: https://webapps.umassd.edu/events/library/?ek=598

This year’s Science Boot Camp will be held June 15-17, 2016 on the campus of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, in Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

The science topics for this year’s boot camp include Nursing, Physics and Civil & Environmental Engineering.

Science Boot Camp provides librarians with valuable continuing education at a low cost, and offers three options for attendees—full registration with overnight lodging, commuter registration, or a one day registration option.

Registration fees are $275 for the full 2 ½ days—this applies to both overnight campers and commuters. The one day registration fee is $125.

For complete information and to register, visit the Science Boot Camp 2016 LibGuide at http://guides.library.umass.edu/BootCamp2016.

Please look out for more information on Twitter @NERescience with the hashtag #sciboot16.

NSF Public Access Policy Webinar

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Webinar led by Brown University to discuss the new NSF Public Access Policy and how this will affect the sharing of the results of research, both publications and data, in the coming year.

Title:  Complying with the NSF’s New Public Access Policy and Depositing a Manuscript in NSF-PAR

Date: 12PM-1:30PM Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Description: In 2016 the National Science Foundation (NSF) rolled out its new online public access repository, NSF-PAR for investigators funded by the NSF to deposit their manuscripts to comply with its new Public Access Policy. The NSF’s policy and its new publications repository differ in several key ways from the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) public access policy and PMC, particularly in terms of requirements for compliance and procedures for deposit. While NIH grants may make up the majority of biomedical institutions’ research funds, the NSF is also an important source of biomedical funding, especially for career awards, research training grants, and translational research. In this webinar we will walk participants through the requirements for compliance and the process for deposit and share insights provided by the NSF Policy Office.

Instructors:

Hope Lappen is the Biomedical and Life Sciences Librarian at Brown University. Prior to coming to Brown, Hope served as the Science and Engineering Librarian at George Washington University and the Eugene Garfield Resident in Science Librarianship at University of Pennsylvania.

Andrew Creamer is the Science Data Management Librarian at Brown University. He helps students and faculty researchers with NSF data management plans and digital curation projects. Prior to Brown, Andrew worked on research data management initiatives at the NN/LM NER.

New England Science Boot Camp — Save the Date!

Monday, March 14th, 2016

This year’s Science Boot Camp will be held June 15-17, 2016 on the campus of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Science Boot Camp is a fun and affordable 2 ½ day immersion into science topics offering opportunities for librarians and library students interested in science, health sciences, and technology to learn, meet and network in a fun, laid-back atmosphere. Now in its eighth year, the New England Science Boot Camp has been hosted on multiple New England campuses and has been attended by librarians and library students from various regions of the US and beyond—and inspired the development of other Science Boot Camps in the West, Southeast, and Canada!

The topics for this year’s SBC science sessions include:

  • Nursing
  • Physics
  • Engineering

Each science session will include one scientist presenting an overview of the field, a second scientist discussing research applications within the field. The Capstone session will feature Science Literacy.

Registration for Science Boot Camp will open in April and will be announced via e-mail, the e-Science Community blog, and on Twitter @NERescience.

For further questions, please contact Barbara Merolli at bmerolli@holycross.edu.

Please Save the Date for 2016 New England Science Boot Camp June 15-17, 2016 at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth!
