Data Sharing and Data Access in Biological Anthropology

Course description by the organisers:

In 2017 the AAPA established an ad hoc committee on data access and data sharing in biological anthropology. With the support of a NSF grant to the association, the committee led a workshop on data sharing in 2018. The participants in the workshop set forth a set of guiding principles and best practices to increase and normalize data sharing within biological anthropology. We will present the results of the workshop and open discussion about the implementation of the guiding principles. Lunch will be provided.

The workshop will take place from 12 to 2pm and is open to meeting participants. Pre-registration is required and can be effectuated until 31 March 2020 via the conference workshop registration portal.
