Webinar on Sharing, Discovering, and Citing COVID-19 Data and Code in Generalist Repositories

Sharing, Discovering, and Citing COVID-19 Data and Code

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health hosted a webinar for researchers to learn how to share, discover, and cite COVID-19 data and code in generalist repositories on April 24. More than 1,000 viewers joined live, and a recording of the webinar is available.

The biomedical research community’s understanding of the novel coronavirus and the associated coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is rapidly evolving. Open science and the timely sharing of research data have played a critical role in advancing our understanding of COVID-19 and accelerating the pace of discovery.

This webinar provided researchers an opportunity to hear from multiple generalist repositories about the ways each repository is supporting discoverability and reusability of COVID-19 data and associated code. The NLM also provided an overview of available COVID-19 literature. Presentations are available below.

The webinar recording is available via NIH VideoCast.
