For Love or Money? What Researchers Should Know about Academic Data Cartels
Data is amazing for research, but is it always amazing for researchers? In this discussion, we'll learn about the data companies that are collecting and using academic data. We'll see how academic data analytics has the potential to improve our research opportunities, but also how it can open pitfalls in academics' paths. By critiquing the data companies that create academic data products, we can envision an academic data future that benefits research and researchers. **The Zoom link will be shared with registrants the day before the event.
