    Biography
      Anita is focused on establishing the means for communicating and utilizing the internet for effective scientific communication and discovery. She serves as the lead for the Resource Identification Initiative, a FORCE11, the Future of Research Communications and e-Scholarship, group dedicated to transforming scholarly communication. FORCE was one of the drivers in open access movement and continues to drive innovation in understanding principles behind sharing and utilization of data, software and the role for identifiers. In addition, she is working in the area of knowledge representation in genomics for both Celera (coding the completed human genome into PANTHER) and Human Longevity (gene variants VaNDa), and the neurosciences within the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF), funded by the Blueprint for Neuroscience a pan-NIH initiative. She is also the scientific lead of the NIF project, the largest source of neuroscience data and tools on the web. The NIF framework has been extended to develop data portals for NIDDK (dkNET) and the RRID community portal, where authors are able to improve their manuscripts prior to submission for publication. This has led to the launching of a new company (SciCrunch) which is focused on improving interactions between academic scientists and the business community, both of which are major stakeholders and contributors in driving science forward.

    Abstract:

    The Resource Identification Initiative supports NIH's new guidelines for Rigor and Transparency as these apply in biomedical publications. Authors are instructed to authenticate key biological resources: Antibodies, Model Organisms, and Tools (software, databases, services), by finding or generating stable unique identifiers. Like a library catalog, these identifiers stick around no matter if the company continues to sell the product or not. This persistence is required for good scholarship and forms a bridge between the static world of the scientific paper and the dynamic world of products and tools.
