This year’s Open Access Week motto is “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge”, thus placing the principle of equity in knowledge sharing and information access at the epicentre. Following this spirit, Georgios Chatzigeorgakidis, research associate at Athena Research Center, will be talking about the Hellenic Data Service “HELIX”, a national service which has been developed according to Open Science principles. HELIX promotes the free, without cost, use of data management tools and services that it develops, along with consultation and re-use of research outputs (information, data and software) that it preserves.
The webinar unfolds in two parts: a. introduction to HELIX functionalities and available ways of interacting with the HELIX Data and, b. presentation of good practices for analysing data using the lab service (HELIX Lab). More specifically, the processes of creating, uploading, publishing and searching for open datasets in the HELIX Data will be explained as well as examples of analysing existing datasets using HELIX Lab Jupyter notebooks will be described.
