Data Sharing and Open Science Practices: Implications for the Traumatic Stress Field

Oct 31, 2018 ‐ 8:00 am

Coming to ISTSS?  Join us Saturday Nov 10 at 9:45 for a panel discussion addressing the promise and challenges of data sharing and other open science practices for the traumatic stress field.  What does this mean for traumatic stress studies, across the research data lifecycle -- study design, informed consent, data collection, analysis, publication, sharing and archiving data?

Panelists from the US, Europe, and Australia will discuss: the funders’ perspective on encouraging and enabling data sharing (Dr. Susan Borja, US National Institute of Mental Health), the ethics and challenges of data sharing and open access (Dr. Grete Dyb, Chair, National Committee for Medical and Health Research Ethics, Norway), issues in data sharing, curation, and access in an international repository of traumatic stress data (Dr. Nancy Kassam-Adams, PACT/R Data Archive), and the researcher’s perspective on adopting open science practices (Dr. Eva Alisic, University of Melbourne, Australia).
