SciELO Mexico - SciELO 25 Years Seminar

Open Science Modus Operandi of Research Communication

📅 Abril 12, 2023, 12:00 – 14:00 (BRT/UTC-3)
🌐 Language: Spanish

Open data: from theory to action

Security, preparation, access, privacy and technology are the words most frequently used when researchers, informaticians and librarians express their concerns regarding the management of research data. This seminar will address the aspects to consider, as well as the steps to take to address these concerns, according to best practices and following international standards.


Research Data Management (RDM) brings with it many concerns and a desire to continue learning about a topic that is very important in the eyes of researchers, librarians, computer scientists and other personalities. This seminar aims to address everything from the essence of open data to the IT security practices that should be followed to manage it.

The digital identity plays a very important role within the RDM, so it will be reviewed how it contributes to the visibility and positioning of data through the management plan and how these together with their information can be housed within platforms called data repositories, highlighting the benefits they can have for those who consult them. Finally, a brief tour will be made of those good practices and technologies related to information security on these platforms.
