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

This month's topic is: Open Access Study - Motivations and barriers for UCLA STEM researchers to participate in open access publishing


The UCLA library conducted a study of publishing attitudes and preferences among UCLA STEM researchers as it relates to current directions in open access research and data publishing. 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.

The UC system, along with many publishers and funders of academic research including the NIH, 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.
