Reproducible and Citable Data and Models Workshop

Last week the FAIRDOM team were in the beautiful seaside town of Warnemünde, Germany, holding their first Reproducible and Citable Data and Models Workshop. The workshop ran for 3 days from September 14th-16th, and was supported by EraSysAPP. It featured: talks from field experts in reproducible and citable data and models, introducing the participants to the state-of-the-art; hands-on sessions for how to structure, store, snapshot, and publish data and models to Zenodo and ORCiD; what Research Objects and Combine Archives are and how to create them; how to use software such as SEEK to improve the reproducibilty of published models.

We had participants from UK, Germany, Norway and Italy, with both academia and industry represented. The atmosphere was relaxed and productive, with participants citing it as highly useful for their research.

You can access the experts talks which established the state-of-the-art for participants:

Jo McEntyre (EMBL-EBI, UK), Citing data in research articles: principles, implementation, challenges – and the benefits of changing our ways.
