We welcome proposals that discuss how data has led to radical change. This can include but is not limited to:
The committee encourages proposals from both first-time RDAP presenters and those who provide a follow up on a project previously presented at an RDAP Summit. Presenters are invited to think about how research data issues can create and sustain inclusive communities and inform our services, practices, and technology.
We also welcome submissions from employees of sponsors and will evaluate them using the same methods as other submissions. However, submissions will not be considered if they focus only on demonstrating or selling a sponsor’s specific product.
The committee will consider 1) the currency and relevance of the topic to the field, 2) appropriateness of the proposal for the session type, 3) impact of practices, conclusions, or recommendations (if applicable), 4) evidence of critical engagement (i.e. considering the context of the topic in the larger world of questions about equity and justice), 5) organization and clarity, and 6) evidence of ethical research practice (if applicable). Proposals will also be evaluated on potential engagement of participants and how it will provide and encourage multiple perspectives and views on the topic proposed. Workshop proposals will be evaluated based on their learning outcomes. Lightning talks can be shorter and more informal and the committee will evaluate them with that in mind.
Finally, we expect:
RDAP and the Journal of eScience Librarianship(JeSLIB) are pleased to continue their partnership for RDAP Summit 2021.
All RDAP Summit 2021 presenters are encouraged to submit proposals for a special issue in JeSLIB. Commentaries are also welcome for publication in JeSLIB from first time and veteran attendees.
JeSLIB is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes full-length papers, eScience in Action articles, reviews, commentaries, and video articles. For more information see JeSLIB’s Guidelines for Authors.
Submissions require the contact information of the primary presenter, the proposal type, title, summary (max 150 words), a brief statement about what informed your involvement in this topic, and three or fewer topic keywords describing the proposal. Workshop proposals will require learning outcomes.
RDAP Summit is an independent conference through the RDAP Association, which provides accessible and affordable opportunities to connect with the research data support community.
Presenters will not receive a discounted conference rate because the conference organizers are attempting to set one low registration rate for all attendees.
