[InetBib] Call for Abstracts: Sharing psychological research data

***With apologies for cross-posting***

Dear colleagues,

the Leibniz Institute for Psychology Information (ZPID) would like to
invite you to attend the 1st online conference of the PsyCuraDat project:

"Sharing psychological research data: Best practices and new developments

Key data

The online conference will take place on December 07 and 08, 2020.

The online conference is aimed at those who would like to actively
participate in a cultural change within the domain of psychology towards a
more open and transparent science.

More details on presentation formats, aims and scope of the conference and
much more can be found on the CSPD2020 conference page

Brief description

The aim of the PsyCuraDat project
is to develop criteria and standards for the curation of psychological
research data, which are based on the needs of researchers in their role as
data providers and data users. In this way, we want to enable a more
efficient and effective documentation and reuse of psychological research

The primary problem regarding data reuse is the still insufficient
willingness of researchers to make their data accessible to a broader
audience. At the same time, only a very small percentage of data is reused
in psychology. The root of both problems may be seen in the fact that
existing criteria and standards for the curation of psychological research
data are inadequately tailored to the needs of researchers.

In this context, the online conference is pursuing two strategic goals. On
the one hand, it is aimed at giving researchers and infrastructure
providers the opportunity to discuss theses (i.e. possible new
developments) and best practices for developing or implementing curation
criteria and quality standards for psychological research data. On the
other hand, the conference is targeted at enabling a further evaluation of
the preliminary project results of PsyCuraDat by identifying potential
problems in the implementation of the curation criteria and quality
standards and exploring possible solutions. Specifically, our aim is to
verify the fit between the preliminarily developed criteria and standards
for psychological research data and the interests of the various

Submission of contributions

We welcome contributions from researchers and infrastructure providers who
address concepts or best practices for the development and implementation
of curation criteria and quality standards for psychological research data.
The contributions could, for instance, address the following topics:


   Requirements and criteria for psychological research data according to
   the FAIR principles


   Quality assurance in the provision of psychological research data


   Incentive / reward systems for the establishment of standards for the
   curation of psychological research data within the community

We ask interested parties to submit abstracts with a maximum length of 250
words via the abstract submission form on our conference page until
November 15, 2020: https://www.conference-service.com/CSPD2020/access.html

We ask you to pass this information on to interested colleagues and look
forward to your contributions. If you have any questions about the
conference, please contact us at the e-mail address

Best regards,

Katarina Blask and Marie-Luise Müller
