White House expands access to the results of tax payer funded research


In reponse to a "We the people" petition to increase public access to the results of tax payer funded research, the Office of Science and Technology Policy recently issued a directive requiring all Federal agencies with expenditures on research and development projects of more than 100 million dollars a year to make the published results of the research that they fund freely available to the public after 1 year and to require the researchers conducting the work to have increased accountibility and management of the data that is generated.

This new directive aligns the US more closely with what has occured in the UK with the Government adopting the recommendations of the National Working Group on Expanding Access to Published Research Findings (the Finch Group) and directing the Research Councils UK and others to develop policies to fund open access to research findings.

The movement towards open access for data appears to be gaining ground.

Publishers Requiring ORCID in 2016

Beginning from January 2016 the Publishers of a number of journals will be requiring authors to submit their ORCID ID's during the article submission process.

These Publishers include The Royal Society, PLoS, Science, eLife and The Company of Biologists.

NIH Student Loan Repayment for Researchers


Research scientists develop treatments and discover cures for diseases and disorders that affect us all. More researchers are needed to meet today’s critical health needs. The NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) encourage promising researchers and scientists to pursue research careers by repaying up to $35,000 of their qualified student loan debt each year, through: 

Extramural LRPs - for researchers and scientists conducting research at universities and other nonprofit organizations 

Your research goals need to be within the mission of NIH and scope of the LRPs. You do not need an NIH grant to participate in the NIH Loan Repayment Programs.

Get Started

Watch our webinars - Overview of Loan Repayment and Application Tutorial - for insight into the applicaiton process and tips for success.

Biobase / Proteome Training - June 7, 2012

 BIOBASE Knowledge Library – PROTEOME™ Functional Analysis Solution and Its Applications in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Variant Analysis

Dr. Jennifer Hogan
VP, Product Development, BIOBASE

Thursday, June 7, 2012
1:00 – 4:00 pm

Szybalski Room (1st Floor), Carnegie (Library & Archives) Building

 PROTEOME™’s powerful ontology search query system, with specialized tools for gene set analysis and pathway visualization, allows scientists working with mammalian, yeast, worm, and plant species to quickly find answers to questions relevant to their research. A specialized custom sequence annotation tool allows scientists working with other species to extend predictive functions to newly sequenced genes of otherwise uncharacterized genomes.

The training will be classroom style with hands-on demo and exercises. Examples will be provided and several laptops will be available for participants’ use, but feel free to bring your own laptop and search on your favorite genes/protein/diseases.
