CANCELLED: AAPA Workshop: Data Sharing and Data Access


Planned for 17 April 2020 in Los Angeles (California, USA).

For the annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropology (AAPA) from 15 to 18 April 2020 in Los Angeles, the following workshop was offered by the AAPA ad hoc committee on data access in biological anthropology:

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 meeting in Los Angeles was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This also affects the workshop.
