managing current & Pending (and other) support
Presenter: Roger Wood, InfoEd Global

Increasing emphasis on foreign activities and other aspects of responsible stewardship of federal funds drives agencies toward more comprehensive and sophisticated reporting requirements to achieve their mandate to prevent scientific, budgetary, or commitment overlap. Effort associated with pending and active awards represents one component of data needed for these reports. Financial and other conflicts of interest/commitment data as well as information from agreements or other sources may be needed to complete these reports. Compiling and reviewing ‘other support’ information can be a complex and tedious process but needs to be done thoroughly and carefully. Join us in this session to learn how InfoEd Global’s Other Support module can help your institution standardize and organize the process of collecting and reviewing these materials and generating formatted output based on standard templates.

Presenter: Arta Kabashi, Dimensions/Digital Science

Join us for an overview of Dimensions (dimensions.ai), the latest innovation in research data discovery and analysis, and the largest linked research database. Dimensions contains over four billion links between more than 138M records, including over 123M publications (conference proceedings, preprints, articles, books and book chapters), 11M datasets, $2.1T in grant funding from over 625 funders globally, 141M patent records, 679k clinical trials, and 740k policy documents.  Find out how you can leverage this data efficiently and strategically for the benefit of your entire institution, from early career researchers to research office leadership

Leadership Tools in RD
Presenters: M.S. "Peg" AtKisson, AtKisson Training Group; Jet LeBlanc, AtKisson Training Group

Join us for an interactive session on Leadership Tools in RD. Learn from two of our experienced leadership facilitators who will demonstrate some tools and exercises used in our leadership programs. Because ATG is the “initiation codon” for protein synthesis in a cell, we will focus on two specific tools to use at the beginning of a project or team—setting expectations for how the group plans to be together, and a rubric for talking through what you plan to do. These practical tools will help you start a project on the right track or can even be used to course correct.  

Presenters: Anne Maglia, University of Massachusetts-Lowell; Karen Fletcher, Appalachian State University; Karen Markin, University of Rhode Island


Join NORDP members, Karen Markin, Karen Fletcher, and Anne Maglia for a panel chat on Advancements in Research Development. Topics will focus on general concepts within RD and the attendees will be encouraged to ask live questions. Hope to see you there.


The Role of Open Science - What are publishers doing to promote responsible research?
Presenters: Joseph Lerro, F1000/Taylor & Francis

As of January 2023, the NIH will be implementing a new Policy for Data Management and Sharing. The policy aims to promote the management and sharing of scientific data and emphasizes the importance of good data management practices and reflects a growing commitment among research institutions to maximize responsible sharing of scientific data. Scholarly publishers play a vital role in facilitating open access and open science policy and practice; open science requires collaboration among all the stakeholders in the scholarly ecosystem.

Much more than open access, open science is rapidly becoming an approach that researchers, institutions and funders are embracing as a way to help deliver a more constructive and effective research culture, one that is aligned with initiatives such as DORA, and one that will bring benefits to the whole research system. Specifically, publishers are working hard to enable more rapid and earlier access to and discoverability for all types of research output from across the research cycle. Demand for more rapid and fuller access to research needs to be accompanied by mechanisms that support responsible research practices and that can safeguard trust in research.

Join Joseph Lerro, Open Research Manager at F1000 and Taylor & Francis, for an overview of how publishers can contribute to responsible research through open science practices - a more transparent and collaborative way of sharing knowledge, with benefits for all the stakeholders in research. We’ll introduce examples of the ways in which scholarly publishers are adapting their services to reduce research waste, from introducing data and code sharing practices, ensuring precise metadata, to enabling a breadth of article types to make research in all its forms and formats, as discoverable and usable as possible.

We will introduce scholarly publishing solutions that have been designed with openness, transparency, and the reproducibility of research outputs at their core, as well as providing credit and visibility for researchers for all the contributions that they make to research.

This presentation will show practical ways in which collaboration between the key stakeholders in the scholarly research ecosystem can facilitate the shift to open science, and bring about real change in how we discover, value and use research – to the benefit of our shared research system and society as a whole.
