Working with sensitive research data?

In the next two weeks Bodleian Libraries are running two workshops for DPhils and Researchers working with sensitive research data:  the first will focus on research data in the Social Sciences and Humanities; and the second will focus on the Sciences and Medical Sciences.

These workshops will outline some of the key principles to bear in mind when working with sensitive or restricted research; whether collected yourself or obtained from a third party source such as a data archive or an NHS trust or Biobank data.  Issues of confidentiality, informed consent, cybersecurity and data management will be covered.  Examples of scenarios or concerns drawn from the research of participants are particularly welcome.  The role of support services at Oxford will also be outlined and in particular the role of the Bodleian Data Librarian who will lead the session.  Follow up consultations with the Data librarian or other subject consultants are also offered.

Attendance at this workshop is FREE, but online booking is essential.  Click below for further information on each workshop and to book a place:
