Workshop on Research Objects (RO2018)

2018-10-29 at IEEE eScience 2018, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
http://www.researchobject.org/ro2018/

## Timeline

2018-07-01 Abstracts due
2018-07-15 Research articles and software/data articles due
2018-08-31 Notification of acceptance
2018-08-31 IEEE eScience 2018 early-bird registration deadline
2018-10-29 RO2018 workshop at IEEE eScience 2018

## Research Objects

Scholarly Communication has evolved significantly in recent years, with an
increasing focus on Open Research, FAIR data sharing and community-developed
open source methods. A question remains on how to publish, archive and explore
digital research outputs.

A number of initiatives have begun to explore how to package and describe
research outputs, data, methods, workflows, provenance and structured metadata,
reusing existing Web standards and formats.

Such efforts aim to address the challenges of structuring multi-part research
outcomes with their context, handling distributed and living content and
porting and safely exchange what we collectively can call “Research Objects”
between platforms and between researchers.

## Call for Papers

In the workshop RO2018 we will explore recent advancements in Research Objects
and publishing of research data with peer-reviewed presentations, invited
talks, short demos, lightning talks and break-out sessions to further build
relationships across scientific domains and RO practitioners.

RO2018 welcomes submissions of academic abstracts (1-2 pages), data/software
articles (3-6 pages) and short research articles (4-8 pages) on cross-cutting
case studies or specific research on topics including, but not limited to:

  FAIR metrics; platforms, infrastructure and tools; lifecycles; access control
  and secure exchange; examples of exploitation and application; executable
  containers; metadata, packaging and formats; credit, attribution and peer
  review; dealing with scale and distribution; driving adoption within current
  scholarly communications and alignments with community efforts; and
  domain-specific and cross-domain Research Objects.

## Submitting

Submitted abstracts and articles can be in a range of open formats (e.g. HTML,
ePub) and are particularly encouraged to be submitted in a FAIR research data
packing format.

Accepted abstracts and articles will be included in the IEEE eScience 2018
proceedings. Submitted preprints will, upon acceptance, be made available as
Green Open Access on the RO2018 website with DOI links to the Zenodo record and
(eventually) the published IEEE proceeding article.

It is a requirement that at least one author of each accepted submission
attends the RO2018 workshop and at the IEEE eScience 2018 conference, where
registration fees applies.

Further details on submitting:
http://www.researchobject.org/ro2018/submitting-to-ro2018/

RO2018 encourages open peer review, and recommend that reviewers
are named and attributed; however reviewers may be anonymous if so
desired. Reviewers are welcome to publish their reviews using the
same guidelines as the research articles.

Enough Nurses - Special Collection c/o Journal of Research in Nursing

http://journals.sagepub.com/page/jrn/collections/virtual-special-issues/enough-nurses



"JRN is pleased to introduce this online special collection of papers. Edited by Jane Ball, this collection comprises previously published papers and reviews that give a taste of the constellation of issues that contribute to having 'enough nurses'. They illustrate the complexity and interdependency of the many elements that must be addressed to achieve the elusive goal of having the right staff, in the right place, at the right time."

#EndPJparalysis - NHS 70

For people who are agitated and living with dementia their carers may learn to remove such cues as hat, coat and shoes.

Seeing these may cause increased agitation as a need to be elsewhere.

For #EndPJparalysis perhaps we can reverse this and use the sight clothes and footwear as a cue for 'get up & try to go'.

Q. What is nursing work? A. Hodges' model


http://jenniferjacksonrn.org/nursing-work/
Image: Jennifer Jackson


The above also reflects the domains of Hodges' model which is derived from the following questions:

Who do nurses (healthcare professionals, carers) care for?

This provides us with the INDIVIDUAL - GROUP (Population) vertical axis.

What types of activities, tasks - work do nurses then have to carry out to deliver care?

This question accounts for the horizontal axis of Hodges model.

They Heard Voices - "ILS ENTENDAIENT DES VOIX"

"An independent documentary looking at the hearing voices (HV) movement, chronic psychosis and the schizophrenia label.

A film offering multiple perspectives: is schizophrenia hard science or an arbitrary, catch-all term with no real meaning? What does it mean for those experiencing psychosis? The film is a series of wide-ranging interviews with voice hearers, medical historians, anthropologists and psychiatrists from Britain and America.

Featuring: Erin Emiru, Rai Waddingham, Kevin Healey, Mark Roininen, Angela Woods (Ph.D), Edward Shorter (Ph.D), Dr Avery Krisman, Dr Albert Wong, Suman Fernando, and Stefen Ecks (Ph.D)."

Borders & Boundaries 2018: Debating the limits and possibilities of Education

The Department of Educational Research invite international speakers every summer, and this year we are opening the event up to invite critical interdisciplinary scholars to engage in a range of events which bring together our three research centres: Higher Education Research and Evaluation; Technology Enhanced Learning; and Social Justice and Wellbeing in Education.

This year’s theme is Borders and Boundaries, which will be unpacked by our internationally renowned speakers and a programme of conference presentations on 3rd and 4th of July in the historic city of Lancaster.

Borders and Boundaries: Debating the limits and possibilities of Education

Borders and boundaries is an important theme in educational research and practice, having multiple meanings and interpretations. At one level, this notion reflects critical conceptualisations of place, territories and educational (im)mobilities which have come to the surface in recent years as a response to political and policy changes that seek to limit the movement of people and ideas. Alternatively, borders and boundaries may be taken to refer to theoretical demarcations and interactions, and the increasing emphasis on interdisciplinarity within research, and the associated instability of categories such as academic, practitioner, researcher and educator in the context of efficiency and structural changes within schools, universities and other institutions. This theme also has analytical value for framing debates about the perceived fluidity of formal and informal educational space in the digital age, simultaneously democratising knowledge and blurring the boundaries between professional and personal identities for many educators and academics. Finally, we envisage the theme of borders and boundaries as providing a way into discussions about social distinctions and emotional separations, which shape educational experiences, transitions, and outcomes in a broad range of ways.
