DGIT and the UCLA Library have come together to discuss reproducibility, data management and publishing strategies for biomedical researchers.

Join us this time for: Motivations and barriers for UCLA STEM researchers to participate in open access publishing

It is widely recognized that open science practices make research more accessible, amplifies research visibility, and supports reproducibility. The University of California system, along with many publishers and funders of academic research, have implemented various policies to make research articles, research data, and research methodologies publicly available. Compliance to existing policies remains low, and the barriers to compliance for researchers across STEM fields is often opaque. As such, our team at the UCLA Science Libraries surveyed research motivations across STEM departments at UCLA. This brown bag event will describe key findings of the survey and create space for faculty, staff and student input for future directions of this research.
