Information Access Seminar

Research Data Publishing Ethics

Friday, February 4, 2022
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm PST

Daniella Lowenberg, California Digital Library

As researchers and institutions increasingly invest in research data management and sharing practices, it’s clear that research integrity and ethical issues related to the publication of data are growing and require attention. Scholarly journals have guidance on how to handle ethical and legal issues that arise during the publication process, but to date there has not been clear or standard guidance for publishing data. Libraries, researchers, repository managers, federal agencies, publishers, and research integrity officers came together to publish the first set of guidance: “FORCE11 and Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Recommendations for the handling of Ethical Concerns Relating to the Publication of Research Data”.

Join Daniella Lowenberg of the California Digital Library to learn about the diverse integrity and ethical issues that may arise in data publishing, community-built resources, and how this space may evolve.
