Of particular note:
Dr. Kelvin Droegemeier, Vice President for Research and Regents' Professor of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma, will be speaking on Monday, October 20 from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. at The Commons, Spooner Hall. This presentation examines the challenges and opportunities associated with the open sharing of research data, including the definition of data, determination of what should be shared, assurance of proper use, relevance of reproducibility, and assignment of credit, cost and cost ownership. Views will be offered regarding the potential for open access to fundamentally transform the scholarship enterprise in ways both good and bad.
