Data management and federal funding: What researchers need to know

scholcomm-logo2When: Tuesday, September 27, 2011, 12:00 PM
Where: Presidential Rooms 2 & 3, Faculty House
Refreshments will be served.

New requirements from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and other federal agencies have brought data management and sharing into the spotlight. This trend will continue as more research sponsors, and the general public, demand increased access to federally-funded research data. This event will examine the goals of these requirements and explore the technical, scientific, and professional challenges resulting from efforts to preserve and share data.  See the Scholarly Communication Program website for more information.

This event is sponsored by the Scholarly Communication Program at Columbia University in conjunction with the office Office of Research Compliance and Training.

Tips for using Google Scholar

It is possible to link from Google Scholar right to the full text of the article (if we subscribe).

Follow the steps below and start googling!

1) Click on the link at the top right of the page called Scholar Preferences.

2) In the section called Library Links, type Columbia in the box and click on Find Library. This brings up an option, Columbia University in the City of New York – e-Link @ Columbia, which if you check it, will provide you with links to the full text of the articles that you find in Google Scholar, if Columbia provides you access to the full text of those journals.

3) Click on Save Preferences.
