From Asking Questions to Sharing Data: A Look at Ethics in Social Research

Friday, October 5, 2018 // 12:45 pm

Paley Library: Digital Scholarship Center -- 1210 W. Berks Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122

Data Powered By You October 1-5, 2018

Join us for a webinar group viewing of From Asking Questions to Sharing Data: A Look at Ethics in Social Research, part of the 2018 ICPSR Data Fair.

The attention on data sharing has focused ethics discussions on the informed consent process, but collecting, sharing, and reusing data actually involve a series of potential ethical considerations. This session will focus on the ways in which decisions about sampling, question wording, and even analyzing data can have ethical implications. Presented by Lynette Hoelter, Director of Instructional Resources at ICPSR.

Temple’s ICPSR representatives will be on hand to answer questions about Temple’s ICPSR membership, data access, and depositing options.
