DaEG is an article discussion group concerned with data curation, management, sharing, publication, citation, and the services and infrastructures surrounding these activities at Yale and at universities and data centers around the world. More information about DaEG's structure is available in our guiding document.
Discussion meetings are one hour long and follow a basic agenda:
40 minutes: Article discussion or presentation + Q&A
15 minutes: Conference updates
5 minutes: Closing question round-robin before the meeting ends
We generally meet once per quarter/semester, or 3-4 times per year. In Spring 2019, our meeting date is March 13, 2019, from 9:30-10:30 AM in the CSSSI Seminar Room. CSSSI is located in the Kline Biology Tower on the level below the café, and the seminar room is on the lower level of the CSSSI.
At the March meeting, we will discuss the following article: Renaut, S., Budden, A., Gravel, D., Poisot, T., & Peres-Neto, P. (2018). Data management, archiving, and sharing for biologists and the role of research institutions in the technology-oriented age. Bioscience, 68(6), 400-411. doi:10.1093/biosci/biy038
The current (unofficial) organizer of DaEG is Kayleigh Bohémier (email). She can answer questions about the group.
