PeerJ announces PeerJ Collection for SMBE 2017 attendees to make their abstracts publicly available
- 26 Jun 2017

PeerJ will be publishing a PeerJ Collection for the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution (SMBE 2017) in Austin, TX. The meeting will take place from July 2-6, 2017. All speakers and poster presenters are encouraged to submit their accepted abstracts to the Collection.

The annual SMBE meeting is one of the key conferences to attend for scientists working in the field of molecular biology and evolution. The meeting routinely draws over 1000 attendees, who travel to the meeting location from all over the world.

The SMBE meeting is intentionally international, and its meeting venue changes annually from Europe to the Americas to Asia. Each year, a different local organising committee takes over the organisation of the meeting and gives it a unique, local flair, while the Society underwrites the meeting and provides a general meeting framework.

This year, for the first time, SMBE meeting attendees have been provided with the opportunity to make their abstracts publicly available. The SMBE meeting has not historically published the accepted abstracts, and the meeting contents were previously not generally available until peer reviewed and formally published in a scientific journal.

All SMBE 2017 presenters have been invited to submit their abstracts to PeerJ Preprints. Presenters are encouraged to attach their posters or talk slides to their abstracts, so that these meeting products are also preserved for future viewing, but they can also just submit the abstracts as is. Because this is an experiment, participation is entirely voluntary. Submission is completely free and published under a CC BY 4.0 license.

COAR member-only webinar - DSpace-CRIS: How to Bring Repositories and CRIS/RIMS Together
- 20 Jun 2017

COAR Member-Only webinar: DSpace-CRIS: How to Bring Repositories and CRIS/RIMS Together will take place on July 10 at 9:30 am CEST. Interested parties may register by July 7, 2017.

CRIS/RIMS (Current Research Information Systems / Research Information Management Systems) are becoming more and more relevant to monitor research activities and outputs, highlighting strengths and weaknesses of institutional performance and providing insight for budget allocation, collaboration and funding opportunities, etc.

Susanna Mornati, COO of 4Science, will introduce challenges and opportunities of CRIS/RIMS from the perspective of the repository managers. DSpace-CRIS, its main functionalities and its added value for institutions, including the integration with ORCiD and the new add-on modules for viewing images and documents, video/audio streaming and data management will be presented.

Andrea Bollini, CTIO of 4Science, will present the open source technologies and the international standards adopted for DSpace-CRIS (e.g.: IIIF and CKAN), the interoperability with external systems and the new enhancements that came with the latest releases. The evolution from traditional IRs to components of a VRE (Virtual Research Environment) will be explored.

The competition challenges participants to explain their research thesis in a clear and engaging three-minute talk aimed at non-specialists. The main prize, which is sponsored by Springer Nature, is EUR 2,000 to attend the Asia-Pacific 3MTŪ in Brisbane, Australia on September 29, 2017.

Developed by the University of Queensland in 2008, 3MTŪ events are now held in over 400 institutions across six continents. This is the first ever nationwide 3MTŪ competition in Singapore and it is being organised by the NTU Graduate Student Council (NTUGSC). Five PhD students are nominated to attend the Singapore 3MTŪ from each of the four participating universities: National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Management University and Singapore University of Technology&Design. The judges will select one Singapore 3MTŪ winner and two runner-ups from the 20 finalists.

The Asia-Pacific 3MTŪ draws students from Australia, New Zealand, and other countries from Asia such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand and Japan.

Digital preservation experts worldwide to discuss challenges of digital preservation and share their experiences using Rosetta
- 14 Jun 2017

Users of the Ex Libris Rosetta digital asset management and preservation solution are gathering this week at the University of Sheffield in Sheffield, UK, for the eighth annual meeting of the Rosetta Advisory Group. This meeting marks 10 years since the development of the Rosetta digital asset preservation and management solution began.

The Rosetta 2017 Advisory Group meeting will explore a range of topics, including the importance of digital preservation itself, major challenges facing digital preservation in the future, and ways in which users are taking advantage of the integration capabilities of Rosetta to further streamline their workflows and facilitate their day-to-day preservation and management tasks. Customers will also have an opportunity to join the Ex Libris management team in a discussion of the Rosetta roadmap and to formulate their future needs for digital preservation and management.

This year's keynote speakers will discuss both the central importance and the challenges of digital preservation. Richard Ovenden, Bodley's Librarian at the University of Oxford and president of the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), will speak on 'Fake News and Dark Ads: Why Digital Preservation Has Never Mattered More,' while William Kilbride, executive director of the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), will present the topic 'Change is Here to Stay: What Does It Mean and What Do We Need to Do About It?' In addition, experts from various institutions will speak about the preservation of complex digital objects, such as research data and harvested websites, in Rosetta; the process of certifying a Rosetta system as a Trusted Digital Repository; and Rosetta's support for the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF).
