01/23/18 Data Management and Information Governance Luncheon - Beth Cate: "Who Owns the Data?"
From David Price
The management of Research Data is an important consideration to all research scientists. From archiving, ownership, retention, security, storage, and transfer—data is a central consideration in many aspects of data management. Yet, who owns the data is a central consideration in research as ownership also can generally include the ability to control. Hence, who owns the data is an essential consideration as ownership may also entail stewardship responsibilities and reuse limitations. “Who Owns the Data” networking lunch hopes to encourage researchers to consider the ownership of data in their research environment. Intended to provide a brief background of ownership of research data, the lunch event will provide some basic questions for a researcher to consider. The event will include opportunities for discussion and networking within—and external to—the IU community.
