NFAIS Webinar

Enabling Collaborative Research:
Emerging New Platforms and Business Models for Information Discovery, Acquisition and Use

Time: 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Date: January 18

Global collaborative research is now the norm – within single organizations having multiple sites around the world and across diverse organizations working together on international projects. Key to the success of collaborative initiatives is the ability of researchers to cost-effectively (and legally) access, use, and potentially share published works. And at least two new platforms supported by innovative business models have recently been developed to meet this specific need.

Our featured speakers will be:
Ryan Jones, President, PubGet, and
Phill Jones, Vice President for Business Development, Labtiva, Inc.

Some of the key discussion points will be:

  • Emerging collaborative research platforms – what they are and why they are needed
  • Their use and applications across research discipline
  • Their purpose – a transitional technology to facilitate navigation from an analog world to a digital one or a technology with long-term potential
  • Requirements of both the Academic Research and Corporate/Enterprise Environments in support of collaboration and the workflow process
  • Issues related to the sharing of published literature
  • Licensing and cost concerns
  • “Satisficing” -why this should not be a viable option at the professional research level
  • The technologies being “wired together” to deliver these services
  • The benefits of these two specific services and their ties to either internal corporate knowledge bases or to open resources such as Google Scholar and PubMed.
