Building our infrastructure to expand the research lifecycle

Sharing research early and often throughout the scientific process has the potential to rapidly accelerate the scientific enterprise and provide unique insights into the evolution and direction of scientific thought. However, without any established infrastructure for early-stage research, this segment of the market is lost. Without that interconnectedness, researchers only see the tip of the iceberg. Instead of benefitting from the rich world of early discovery - full of negative results, discarded ideas, or lines of questioning that, when viewed together, could spark future breakthroughs - the opportunity is missed. This session will explore how expanding our thinking of the research lifecycle unlocks opportunities to integrate and enrich our infrastructure while simultaneously facilitating a cultural shift that relieves pressure on the peer review and publishing processes and ultimately improves the quality and integrity of research. Furthermore, a focus on sharing and integrating research objects from earlier in the lifecycle presents a more holistic view of a researcher’s professional output that allows them to advance, connect, and accelerate the impact of their work. In this session, we’ll look practically at how technology can enhance this transformation, and the role of various stakeholders across our industry.
