As we announced earlier this month, tomorrow is our Workshop on Finding and Re-using Open Scientific Resources.

This informal, hands-on workshop will focus on finding and re-using open scientific resources – including public domain data, open access journal articles, and open educational materials. We will look at existing tools for discovering open material, metadata standards for relevant material in different domains, and how researchers go about looking for the material they need.

In addition to focused discussions about legal and technological aspects of re-use, open scientific resources will be documented and tagged on CKAN, a registry of knowledge resources.
