Those of you attending the German Bibliothekartag in Hamburg (22 – 25 May 2012) should be aware of an interesting session on research data management and add it to your personal conference program:
On May 24 there will be a session on “new structures and demands in scientific libraries – research data management in the Leibniz Library Network for Research Information.” In this session Goportis, the Leibniz Library Network for Research Information, is presenting some of its projects on RDM.
In this session, there will be four talks on research data management – the session takes place on Thursday, 24th of May and starts at 13.30 in hall 7.
My colleague Daniel Bahls will open up the session. He’s presenting some results of a survey on research data management practises of economists in Germany. For the survey Daniel and the other members of the MaWiFo-project interviewed economists for gaining insights of the infrastructural needs for managing research data in Economics.
In the third talk I will present the current work status of our project (Abstract: “Wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Forschungsergebnisse replizierbar machen – das Projekt EDaWaX“).
Finally Annita Eppelin (ZB MED) concludes the session with a talk on the importance of research data in the life sciences and how the German national library of medicine supports scientists in structuring, linking and hosting their data.
The session will be chaired by Stefan Winkler-Nees (DFG – German Research Foundation).
