Virtual Workshop on Data Metrics, February 19 9:00-3:30 US EST
The National Institutes of Health’s Office of Data Science Strategy will host a virtual workshop on assessing dataset and data resource value and reach on Wednesday, Feb. 19, beginning at 9 a.m. The goal of this workshop is to discuss core metrics, use cases, and best practices to better understand open data usage and impact. The workshop will focus on two types of data resources – repositories and knowledgebases – and will bring together managers and users of diverse biomedical data resources to discuss community-supported best practices for data metrics. NIH Data Science IdeaScale will be used before and after the workshop to gather input from the community. We especially welcome your idea input prior to the workshop and may use suggestions during the workshop panel sessions.
