Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Wednesday, October 24, 2018, 11:30 AM – 01:30 PM
Location: JEC EPICentre Workshop room
The Leddy Library, in partnership with the Office of Research and Innovation Services presents Gloria Booth-Morrison from ORCiD-CA.

Lunch will be provided.

Key takeaways:

  • Benefits of ORCID for researchers
  • Getting the most out of your ORCID iD
  • ORCID true and false

Bio: Gloria Booth-Morrison leads the outreach initiatives for the ORCID-CA consortium. Previously a Science and Engineering librarian at the University of Ottawa and the Special Projects Librarian at Concordia University, Gloria holds a B.Sc in Biology and Masters in Library and Information Science from McGill University.

Open Access Week is October 22-28, 2018. The theme for this year is “Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge.”

If you've ever done an on-line search for a researcher, you know that it's not always easy to find the right person. Sometimes there are other researchers with the same name and sometimes researchers change institutions making it difficult to know who's who. Will others have equal difficulty finding you? If you want to ensure that people can find you and your works throughout your career, the ORCID identifier can help you.

An ORCID ID is a unique researcher identifier which can be added to your research outputs to ensure that your work is easily distinguished from that of other researchers. ORCID is becoming an international standard and is now used by an increasing number of publishers, funding agencies and universities.

Your ORCID profile is managed by you and can be linked to a range of information such as publications, grants, education and employment history.

You can register for an ID at the ORCID website.

Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Tuesday, November 26, 2019, 09:00 AM – 04:30 PM
Location: Student Research Collaboratory, Leddy Library

Expectations about research data are changing. Governments, research funders, publishers and academic communities are increasingly becoming aware of the value of research data and the importance of fostering digital data stewardship and the reuse of data in research. On the horizon, the Canadian federal granting agencies (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC) are developing their own policy on research data management (RDM) for funded research projects and institutions.

Join your colleagues for an information and consultation event on research data management on campus. Currently planned are a series of talks by invited subject matter experts on Canadian RDM policy, working with sensitive and restrictive data, and on data infrastructure and storage. There will also be a moderated faculty panel discussion on the effects of the upcoming Tri-Agency RDM policy on researchers. Participants will have the opportunity to share their thoughts with ITS, the Library, ORIS and the REB.

Stay for the full day or just a half day. Lunch will be provided.
