Managing and sharing social science research data: legal and ethical issues

Article dated: 08-Mar-11

We are now taking bookings for a workshop on managing and sharing research data for quantitative and qualitative social science research, which will take place at the British Library on 8 April 2011.

The workshop, hosted by the UK Data Archive and the Social Research Association (SRA), is aimed at social researchers at all stages of their career - from new to experienced - and will cover key legal and ethical issues surrounding the managing and sharing of data in research with people (surveys, interviews, focus groups, observations and ethnography).

Content is based on advice and guidance provided by the UK Data Archive to researchers and aims to help researchers plan data management strategies for projects and consider data sharing and archiving as part of ethical review procedures.
