The new regulation has considerable consequences for managing and storing personal data, imposing more responsibility on the data controllers and data processors. During the webinar, relevant parts of the legislation for research and data sharing will be highlighted. Practical consequences for research institutions and in particular ELIXIR Nodes will be explained, and measures outlined that should be implemented for compliance. In addition, challenges and open questions will be addressed and suggestions made on how to jointly tackle these challenges in ELIXIR. This webinar is of interest for data stewards, Technical Coordinators, and everyone interested in the requirements for processing data for research under the GDPR. GDPR

Effective Literature Research with Europe PMC https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/effective-literature-research-with-europe-pmc Following the latest developments in your scientific field requires thorough and frequent literature research. In this webinar, we will show how to find and access relevant scientific literature using Europe PMC, an open biomedical literature database, part of PubMed Central International. We will cover searches by topic and author, searches for associated research data, as well as advanced options for building complex queries. This webinar was recorded on 30 May 2018. It is best viewed in full-screen mode using Google Chrome. The slides from this webinar can be downloaded here. To learn more about searching grant information and on managing, exporting and saving searches you can watch our previous webinar Europe PMC: get the most from literature searches. You will find more information about Europe PMCs API service in our webinar Europe PMC, programmatically. You can also try our Europe PMC: Quick Tour. See the EMBL-EBI training pages for a list of upcoming webinars. This webinar is aimed at scientists who want to optimise their literature searches. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate-level understanding of biology would be useful.
