Whoosh… where has the time gone.
A few weeks ago, I attended and presented at the NLM Biomedical Informatics Trainee conference. My presentation was well-received, despite (or perhaps because of) the fact that it was the last one on the last day. The questions period was more of a “rah-rah” time, as it turned out, with several people jumping in to make more broad statements in support of open access and author addendums. Great stuff.
The talk was a quick 15-minute overview of this paper:
Piwowar HA, Day RS, Fridsma DB (2007) Sharing Detailed Research Data Is Associated with Increased Citation Rate. PLoS ONE 2(3):e308.
Comments, questions, votes: I’d love to hear from you. Turning comments off on this post, so that any discussion can be undiluted at the Nature Precedings site (and/or at the full-text at PLoS ONE). Please note the CC licence; use this work as you will.
Other talks at the conference which I found relevant to my work included:
- Sharing Personal Health Information within Social Networks – Meredith Skeels, University of Washington
- Contextual Analysis of Variation and Quality in Human-Curated Gene Ontology Annotations – W. John MacMullen, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
- A Study of Experimental Information Management in Biomedical Research – Nicholas Anderson, University of Washington
- Sequential Search Result Refinement of the Medical Literature – Len Tanaka, University of Texas School of Health Information Sciences at Houston
oh, and Stanford in June is right up there with Paris in the springtime. Wow, beautiful!
