Center for Science and Innovation Studies (CSIS) Panel: Getting Famous or Getting Scooped?

Wednesday November 30, 2011

UC Davis, Social Sciences and Humanities Building, Room 1246
12:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Come to this workshop to get the scoop on getting scooped. Getting scooped is a reality in research and this workshop will explore the ways that one can publish successively without the fear of being scooped. We will have three panelists who are experts in the field to answer your questions and lead the discussion. The first hour of the workshop will be devoted to a few short presentations from the panelists and the second to an interactive discussion with the audience. This enlightening workshop will provide a forum to help explore questions such as:

  • Has someone ever published your results before you did?
  • Should you fear being scooped?
  • Have you ever shared your results pre-publication and it been beneficial?
  • Are you in neck and neck competition for funding and your research has to be secret until publishing?

Lunch will be provided.  Please RSVP at by 12:00 on Monday 11/28 so we know how many lunches to order.
