RESEARCHER’S TOOLKIT SERIES 2017
Sharing your Research and Data with Arch, 10/25 from 4:30-5:30 
Grant funding agencies and journal publishers increasingly require data sets to be archived and publicly available online. The open science movement advocates for greater transparency in research methodology to address problems with reproducibility in the social and life sciences. Conference presentations, lectures, unpublished papers, blog posts, and other web content suffer link-rot or are otherwise lost in the digital ether. Arch is a self-deposit research and data repository designed for faculty and students to preserve and share scholarly materials. Arch is free to use and is supported by the Northwestern University Libraries. Please bring a laptop to sign in and follow along.
