Transparency in scientific research is a hot topic. To what extent can, and should research data be transparent and accessible?

For validation and reuse open access to research data is important. There are more and more use cases for making research data available. For example, publicly available research data allows the conclusions, as recorded in a scientific publication, to be verified, and also financiers and the European Union and NWO researcher can indicate that his / her publicly funded research is publicly available. But how do you do that? What can, should and must?

This seminar offers insights into the hand of NWO policy regarding public access to research data, and also gives you insight into the possibilities and limitations of the Copyright Act for the reuse of research data. What should you know in order to determine whether research of others can be recycled? What do you arrange or agree? And how do you make your own research data available for reuse by others?

NWO policy
In the new NWO Grants Scheme (section 30 and beyond) from May 1, 2011 NWO confirms an existing policy: data resulting from research funded by NWO is co-owned by NWO. Because of this explicitness in the Regulations to include Grants, NWO brings the importance of data sharing more emphatically to the attention of researchers. That NWO has asserted their partial ownership of available data is not new: this requirement was already included in calls from specific financing arrangements. NWO has now "universally" declared its position by including this statement in the NWO Grants Scheme. The rule will therefore (automatically) apply to all NWO funding instruments. Ron Dekker, Director of Institutes, Finance and Infrastructure of the NWO will bring the NWO policy to light.

Legal aspects
During the seminar, we look at what is allowed and what is not. We'll use the report "The legal status of raw data, a guide for research practice" (2009) and the recently published report data in "Public-Private Projects: Legal Aspects" (2011) . Both reports are written by CIER commissioned by SURF. We will also draw on the experiences of DANS (Data Archiving and Networked Services), which provides storage and permanent access to research in the humanities and social sciences.
Expert speakers include Madeleine de Cock Buning (Professor of Copyright Communications and Media Law at CIER and Commissioner in the Media), Heiko Tjalsma (specialist digital archive at DANS) and Wilma Mossink (legal adviser to SURF ).
