Research integrity: the role of good data management and open data sharing

British Library Conference Centre, London

Organised by JISC and the British Library with the Natural
Environment, Economic and Social and Biotechnology and Biological
Sciences Research Councils

How researchers manage their data has been thrown under the public
spotlight by recent events at the University of East Anglia over
climate data. This major one day conference for researchers and
institutional managers will look at ways in which public confidence in
science can be restored through good management of the research data
lifecycle. High profile plenary speakers will set the scene and
inspire with examples of data sharing, drawn from the environmental,
social and bio- sciences, that have lead to new research and
collaborations that would otherwise have been impossible. The event
will also address the question: how open can science be?

Delegates will choose two out of four strands examining:
•       researchers’ and institutions’ obligations under current
legislation to make their data publicly available;
•       how the integrity of the published record can be maintained
through linking research data directly to journal articles;
•       the practicalities of managing research data to make it
available to a broad range of audiences;
•       the advantages and future implications of making research data ‘open’.

. . . and will come away informed about:
•       their obligations to manage and share their research data;
•       the advice and guidance available from JISC, the RCs and the BL;
•       some of the positive outcomes resulting from research data sharing
•       the issues around making research data openly available
