Welcome to the web forum for this session within the JISC Innovation Forum’s ‘Data’ strand. The (invitation-only) face-to-face component of this forum will be on 15th July 1045-1215. For that to be a success, we need your comments and feedback.
What are we trying to achieve? Well, the aims of the session are:
– to explore the institutional role in the management and sharing of research data, specifically IPR and policy issues
– to allow the participants to share experience and views on options, such as Creative Commons or other open licenses
The session will take the form of a debate, where the motion being debated is: “Curating and sharing research data is best done where the researcher’s institution asserts IPR claims over the data”.
Do you have experiences or views relevant to this motion? What “works” in terms of enabling good curation and sharing practice? What does “works” mean in that question? What risks does an institution run in asserting, or not asserting, IPR claims? How does this relate to the frequent position where data is curated outside the researcher’s institution?
We welcome your comments, evidence, views – please, as soon as possible and by Thursday 10th at the latest. Please use the comments facility below to add your contribution.
