Community webinar — open to all
Monday, May 23, 11.00am - 12.00 Noon, Eastern Daylight Time (US/Canada)
Are you interested in showing support for the Open Discovery Initiative but find the conformance statement requirements confusing or intimidating? Are you concerned about how your organization will be perceived if you submit an imperfect statement? In this free workshop we will break down the requirements into manageable thematic sections, discuss why perfect is the enemy of the good, and share experiences with others who are in the same boat. Speaker: Rachel Kessler, Clarivate Analytics.
