Open Source Community Call – January 2022

Dryad, eLife and FORCE11

community call

Join the Open Source Community Call co-hosted by FORCE11, Dryad, and eLife on January 25th, 9:00am PDT, 12:00am EDT, 5:00pm BST

Innovators share the latest updates and opportunities in research communication and publishing. Representatives share about projects and communities that are emerging or underway, so we can learn more about available open resources, where we can engage or contribute and consider where collaboration can contribute to the path forward.

January 2022 – Streamlining the research lifecycle and enhancing FAIR principles with interoperable tools

A major barrier to streamlining workflows throughout the research lifecycle is lack of interoperability between tools, preventing comprehensive collection and incorporation of research data and metadata into the research record captured during the active phase of research, and limiting the scope for passing this data and metadata on to data repositories, thus undermining FAIR data principles and reproducibility. The Community Call will demonstrate ways in which data capture and reproducibility are enhanced by tool interoperability.  The Call will be divided into four parts:

  1. Introduction: The transformative potential of tool interoperability 
  2. Example Use Case: The new integration between a data planning tool (DMPTool), an electronic lab notebook (RSpace) and a repository Dataverse), and it’s use in an institutional environment (Harvard)
  3. Broader perspectives:  
    1. Domain perspective from the American Geophysical Union.  
    2. National research data management perspective from the Digital Research Alliance of Canada.
  4. Discussion with attendees


  • Danny Brooke, Dataverse
  • Chris Erdmann, American Geophysical Union
  • Julie Goldman, Harvard Medical School
  • Rory Macneil, Research Space
  • Jeff Moon, Digital Research Alliance of Canada
  • Maria Praetzellis, California Digital Library
  • Shelley Stall, American Geophysical Union

Registration is free! Please register at the event registration page.

Open Source Community calls are co-hosted by Dryad, eLife and FORCE11 to foster collaboration and raise awareness of open resources, practices and communities in the research publishing space.
