Round Table on Research Data: Cite, Link and Share

Moderated by: Eefke Smit, Director of Standards and Technology, STM

Research Data is at the heart of Open Science. Publishers can play a pivotal role in making sure that the availability of Research Data is clear to readers and, wherever possible, Research Data is available, is linked to publications and is cited for proper recognition. A round table of experienced publishers in this area will discuss effective ways to do this, and some of the lessons learned, to share good practice with other publishers.
