ORCID is partnering with the Health Research Alliance, a consortium of biomedical research foundations, to host a free webinar on how funders are using ORCID identifiers in their workflows and systems. The webinar will feature presentations by leaders at private and public funding organizations in the U.S. and Europe. Join us to learn why funders are integrating ORCID identifiers into common CV platforms, mandating use during grant submission, and leveraging identifiers to improve tracking and evaluation.

This month the Division of Information Technology (DoIT) made available the Bucky Backup Archive service for faculty, staff, researchers and departments who need a low cost, managed service for long-term data archival. Bucky Backup Archive can be used for the purpose of record retention, retired applications, completed projects, and research data. Learn more and register for the service.
In what they believe will reduce duplication of their registry services, research data repository search tool Databib (datbib.org) and the repository indexing service re3data.org will merge into one project by the end of 2015. The new entity will by manged by the not-for-profit, data set registration service, DataCite (datacite.org). According to the re3data.org site, “the aim of this merger is to reduce duplication of effort and to better serve the research community with a single, sustainable registry of research data repositories that incorporates the best features of both projects.” It is expected that the merged registry will become an imprint of DataCite by the end of 2015 and be included in its regular suite of services. See http://www.re3data.org/2014/03/datacite-re3data-org-databib-collaboration/ for more information on this merger.
