Wednesday 10th August
All researchers at Aston University are required to meet the Open Data policies as specified by funders such as the RCUK and also Astons Institutional Research Data Management Policy. Sharing data has several benefits including the increased visibility of research and the potential increase in the number of citations received for publications. Research data can be both digital and non-digital in nature and is defined by the EPSRC as “recorded factual material commonly retained by and accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings”. Sometimes you may have sensitive data which you believe cannot be shared or you may be worried about the specifics of policy requirements in sharing your data. This presentation will help in understanding what data is required to be shared, when it must be shared and how. Details will also be specified on how to deal effectively with research data which has commercial, ethical or Intellectual Property constraints.
