Managing research data in a responsible way and protecting the research participants is part of a good scientific practice. Recognising the main ethical principles in collecting, processing and sharing research data are essential in responsible research. The training session highlights the key ethical issues in research data management following the research data life-cycle. In addition, the session addresses the guidelines of data protection. 

Training is targeted at researchers and everyone interested in research data ethics and data protection. Trainers work as a data specialists at Tampere University data services

Data sharing and visibility

Sharing research outputs – publication and data – is a core value of open science. Sharing research outputs benefit researchers, research community and society. It increases citations, accelerates the development of science and catalyses innovations and improves decision making. Open science can also benefit global equality when the research findings can be found and be accessed freely worldwide. 

But simply just depositing data in a repository, making research data open, is not enough. What practical measures must be done in order to share data in a  controlled manner so that it gains as much visibility as possible and enables data reusability?

Anonymisation of research data –training  

Tuesday 21.2.2023, 9.00-10.30 (in English) Register here (by 17th of February)
Wednesday
19.4.2023, 9.00-10.30 (in Finnish) Register here (by 14th of April)

Processing personal data constitutes the risk of confidential information relating research participants being revealed to outsiders. Therefore, personal data processing must be planned thoroughly and executed carefully.  Anonymisation is one way of making the data available for sharing and reuse. 

Anomisation of research data -training focuses on anonymising research data in a pragmatic manner. It deals with the anonymisation of both quantitative and qualitative textual material. 

Participation does not require prior preparation, but it is worth getting acquainted with anonymisation by reading from the Data Management Guidelines, section Identification and Anonymisation.  

The training includes group work on both types of material. All participants participate in both group works. The following data examples are discussed in the groups: 

Qualitative data example: https://www.fsd.tuni.fi/files/qualitative-data-example.docx 

Quantitative  data example: https://www.fsd.tuni.fi/files/quantitative-data-example.docx 

Trainers: Henna Juusola and Arja Kuula-Luumi from Finnish Social Science Data Archive  

Registration:  by  Friday February 17th, 2023 at 9 am (link above). Training session will be held present and there is a limit of 30 people in this training. Therefore, 30 first to register will be participating in the training.   

Location: Tampere University, lecture room Linna 4013

When you process personal data or identifiable data, compliance with data protection regulation is essential. In research projects, this means informing research subjects with the privacy notice, documenting processing operations and assessing the risks related to the processing of personal data. The aim of the training is to learn to identify data protection issues relevant to your research.

Training is targeted at researchers, students and everyone interested in data protection. Trainers work as a data specialists at Tampere University data services. 

Training is an online training session. Training will not be recorded. 

How do I write a data management plan for a Academy of Finland  project?

Timetable: around May/June, will be announced later

Managing your data during and after your research project is essential.
