Membership Meeting


The Dryad Community Meeting is an annual event for researchers, journal editors, librarians, data managers, publishers, funders and other individuals or organizations with a stake in the preservation and availability of the scientific and medical data associated with the published literature.

The theme of the 2016 meeting was "Leadership in data publishing: Dryad and learned societies." To make attendance easier, this year's meeting was held online, and in an abbreviated format.


A recorded video of the meeting can be viewed on the Dryad YouTube channel.
