World Data System (WDS) is pleased to announce the signing of the Joint Statement on Research Data (joint statement) from the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM), DataCite, and Crossref on making research data easier to find, link to, re-use and cite. WDS joins these organizations in recognizing the role of research data in expanding open science and research integrity. WDS aims to inspire its membership and fellow researchers with this endorsement and promotion of the joint statement to further develop appropriate data collection and stewardship methods.

Along with the endorsement, WDS is excited to invite you to the Joint Statement on Research Data Webinar. Join us to hear WDS, STM, Crossref, and DataCite discuss the endorsement of the joint statement and what it means for connections within data infrastructure.

Our speakers, Helena Cousijn (DataCite), Martyn Rittman (Crossref), and Hylke Koers (STM) will talk about why it is important to endorse the statement and other assessment recommendations. There will be a Q&A and discussion to conclude the webinar.
