Do you help researchers using IT tools to further their research goals?
Are you involved in research computing and/or data science training?
Do you consult with researchers on more effectively doing their research with advanced computing resources?
Compute with data?
The Researcher-Facing Track of the People Network brings together people from research computing groups, libraries, research institutes, and other organizations who support researchers in every phase of the research lifecycle. Many of us are also Data- & Systems-Facing, but this track is a community-led opportunity to discuss the practices, perspectives, and experiences of facilitation from any perspective.
- Research computing facilitation
- Outreach to all disciplines, esp. those under-represented, to aid with research computing resources
- Education and training
- The art and practice of facilitation
- Increasing communications, collaborations, and team-building
- Research computing UX and user-facing tech
- And more, as determined by our members!
We connect via monthly calls and an email list. We also invite you to review and contribute to the Leading Practices of Facilitation!
The Researcher-Facing Track is supported by the team efforts of two Co-Coordinators and a Steering Committee. Send questions or comments, feedback, call topic ideas, etc., to the coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join Us! Fill out our membership form to let us know who you are and what you’re interested in. We’ll add you to this email list and other Tracks that you indicate.
Monthly calls are on the second Thursday of the month, 1p ET/ 12p CT/ 11a MT/ 10a PT/ 8a HT. Connection information and links to any materials are distributed via the Researcher-Facing email list.
Supporting researchers with NIH’s data management and sharing policy
Thursday May 12, 2022 1pm ET/ 12pm CT/ 11am MT/ 10am PT/ 8am HT
Lisa Federer (Data Science and Open Science Librarian, National Library of Medicine): Introduction to NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy
Kat Milligan-McClellan (Assistant Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology / Microbiology, UConn): Researcher challenges
Tobin Magle: How can researcher-facing staff provide support
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will require researchers to submit a data management and sharing plan with grant applications beginning in January 2023. Many of these researchers are unfamiliar with data management planning and need support to meet this new requirement. This session will give a brief introduction to this new policy and discuss researcher challenges and how we can support researchers with compliance even if you don’t directly provide data management support.
