Schedule

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14

SECURING RESEARCH DATA

11:00 am-12:00 pm, Doe Library, Room 190 (BIDS)

Across campus, researchers face an increasingly complex set of requirements to protect their research data.  While many researchers have developed innovative approaches to accomplish their research, others encounter significant obstacles.  Campus support and guidance for research on these kinds of data sets is uneven at best.  

In this Love Your Data week discussion, Jon Stiles (Federal Statistical RDC) will build on a short introductory discussion with Jesse Rothstein (Public Policy and Economics, IRLE), Carl Mason (Demography) on rewards and challenges of researching and supporting groundbreaking research resources with sensitive or restricted data.  Campus staff and attendees will explore services needed to unlock the research potential of restricted data.  Attendees are also invited to participate in a new D-Lab Working Group focusing on Securing Research Data.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16

RESEARCH DATA PUBLISHING AND LICENSING

11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Doe Library, Room 190 (BIDS)

Your article’s been accepted, but where does your research data end up? Where should it be published, and who can reuse it for their own studies? This workshop covers why and how to publish and license your research data. We’ll address:

  • Why should you publish your data?
  • What tools can you use for publishing data so that your research is transparent and reproducible?
  • What do you “own”?
  • How is your published data being licensed for reuse? How should it be licensed?
  • How can the University Library and RDM support your data publishing and licensing needs?
