WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) will convene a meeting of scientific society leaders, scientific journal editors, scientists, and government officials in Washington, DC, this December to facilitate a discussion of issues related to increasing public access to scientific data. The daylong meeting, which will be held in association with the annual meeting of AIBS Council, is made possible by a grant from the US National Science Foundation.
"We are pleased to have this opportunity to foster an important conversation among scientific societies and journal editors," said Dr. Timothy Beardsley, Editorial Director for AIBS and Editor-in-Chief of the journal BioScience.
"Data are the currency of science," said Dr. Richard O'Grady, executive director of AIBS. "The ability to find and share data makes it possible for scientists to validate research findings and also to ask and answer new questions; many of which were out of reach just a few years ago. This is an exciting time for science."
Practical challenges and a lack of shared standards of practice for reporting and archiving data remain. "This meeting is an opportunity for core stakeholders to come together to start a discussion about common interests," said Beardsley.
AIBS looks forward to having the broad participation of its 150 member organizations and other interested stakeholders. More information about this meeting will be made available at www.aibs.org.
This workshop is supported in part by NSF grant number DBI-1449499.
