Research Information in Transition - free RIN seminars in London

Our colleagues at the Research Information Network (www.rin.ac.uk) are organizing three FREE evening seminars on RESEARCH INFORMATION IN TRANSITION which will be held in London. Details are as follows:

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN at http://www.rin.ac.uk/news/events/research-information-transition-series-evening-events-2010

11 October The future of scholarly publishing – where do we go from here?
18 November Research data – policies and behaviours
13 December Quality assurance – responding to a changing information world

The Research Information Network welcomes you to this programme of events over the course of autumn to explore the huge changes that are taking place in the way that research information and data are created, managed, used and disseminated; and to consider the implications for all those, in the academic realm and beyond, with an interest in the good health of the UK research base.

All three events are free and open to all involved and interested in these issues. We are expecting a lively debate led by experts in their field and hope that we can come to some degree of common understanding of how these changes can be marshalled for the benefit of UK research and what this may mean for the different stakeholders in the foreseeable future.

This series of events will take place at the Royal College of Physicians, in London. Each will run from 17:30 - 20:30, and will consist of a series of short presentations, followed by discussions and opportunities for networking over drinks and canapés. Speakers include:
  • Robert Kiley, Head of Digital Services, Wellcome Library
  • Phil Sykes, Chair of RLUK and University Librarian, Liverpool University
  • Mark Patterson, Director of Publishing, Public Library of Science
Information and registration can be found at http://www.rin.ac.uk/
