ConTech webinar 8 July: Making Better Science Easier

Share this on social media:

Open science is important, but it is also hard. Unfortunately, 'hard' has often meant that scientific quality checks are both slow and inadequate, falling in an unsatisfactory middle ground between two opposing goals. Currently, it can take months or years publish the results of one’s research, yet the lengthy peer review process does not guarantee that science will be open, transparent, and reproducible.

In this presentation 'Making Better Science Easier', Dr Leslie McIntosh will walk through recent improvements in scientific publishing. She will specifically highlight how policy affects practice and how to simultaneously increase the speed and accuracy of quality checks.

McIntosh currently serves in two positions. She is the inaugural executive director for the Research Data Alliance, which is part of a global organisation developing recommendations for data sharing and interoperability. She is also the founder and CEO of Ripeta, LLC, a company formed to improve scientific research reproducibility.

She has experience leading diverse teams to develop and deliver meaningful data to improve scientific decisions. McIntosh is an accomplished data scientist and an internationally known consultant, speaker, and trainer who is passionate about mentoring the next generation.
