Research data : the ethical dimensions

Abstract : Whilst the preoccupations of Information Science have in the past been largely technical, centring on the development and use of metadata, it can be argued that currently the focus is broadly on ethical matters. These include a range of questions concerning ownership and rights to use and exploit research data. This presentation will look at the essential nature of data as a means to throw some light on the rights of human data-subjects, researchers, funders, publishers, commercial exploiters of big data and other players. More questions will be raised than answers will be offered.
