This slide deck was compiled from slides provided by the following UW librarians: Ariel Andrea, Brianna Marshall, Cat Phan, Carrie Nelson, Jessica Newman, Carlos Duarte, Cameron Cook, and Trisha Adamus.
• Vetted by campus for data/security compliance • Access to searchable, sharable research notes from anywhere CONs: • Transitioning a research lab from paper to online is a huge task • Does not have enough features to meet the needs of all researchers
supported by the Center for Open Science. PROs: • Despite its name, not just for STEM projects – useful for any discipline • Many third party integrations with platforms including Google Drive, Box, and more • Excellent access control and versioning CONs: • Reliance on a new platform – even one backed by a nonprofit – invites the usual concerns • Learning curve for understanding best practices, particularly if your workflows involve external storage providers
and/or other media content. PROs: • Easy and efficient time-coding and/or indexing (application) • Modern, user-friendly interface (viewer) CONs: • Some technical knowledge for viewer set-up • UK browser application
of hosted material to usable, non-proprietary formats • Simplifies collaborative authoring and tracking using GitHub engine CONs: • Risk of investing in learning and using a commercial platform • Free version requires documents to be public
Index provides a single point of access to multi-disciplinary research data from online repositories. PROs: • Indexes across multiple data repositories • Faceted searching and established support CONs: • What is data. No really… what do you mean by data? • Not great for discovery, more needles in more haystacks.
• Can write in rich text, WYSIWYG editor or LaTeX editor • Integrated submissions system with some publishers, journals, & services • Include multiple pre-built templates including posters & presentations • Includes commenting, version history, spellcheck, pdf download, clone to Git CONs: • Cap on storage, number of projects, and extra features with free version • Most useful for those who write mathematics or want more typesetting control
a lifelong digital name, which you control and can use through your entire career. It ensures that you, your contributions, and your affiliation information are connected, even if you change your name, affiliation, discipline, or country. PROs: • 1 Saves you time – “enter once, re-use often”. • 2 You own and control your record, managing what information is connected and how it is shared. • 3 More and more systems you already use are connected with ORCID. CONs: • 1 Still requires upload from databases (Web of Science or Scopus) or manual entry to load older publications.
