Faculty News: Tenopir, Allard, Pettigrew

Carol TenopirChancellor’s Professor Carol Tenopir was interviewed on Oct. 28 by Michigan Public Radio.  Using WUOT’s facilities, Tenopir discussed the DataONE survey results of scientists published in 2011  (http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0021101). The interview was conducted for use on The Environment Report.  The segment on which her interview will be used focuses on the tension between disclosing scientific data at incremental steps as it’s prepared so it can be used to inform policy decisions, versus holding off on data disclosure to avoid jeopardizing the potential for publication. Tenopir was interviewed because she is PI of DataONE, one of the largest studies looking at the attitudes of environmental scientists toward data management.
