Today, PIJIP Director Michael Carroll will deliver a talk at the Princeton University Lewis Library, on the topic. “Sharing Research Data: When, in What Form, with Whom, and at What Cost?”

His talk will focus on “the emerging policy framework for data management, with particular attention to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s directive concerning data arising from federal support agreements, and on other legal considerations for data sharing including intellectual property, privacy, and contractual terms of use.  In most cases, data may readily be shared, with the notable exceptions of clinical and patient data.  The principal legal and policy issues center primarily on providing researchers with incentives and infrastructure to meaningfully share data by ensuring that datasets are comprehensible and reusable by other researchers.”
