Session Summary: This OSP + Me session will provide an overview on data sharing requirements and the need for institutions to develop clear policies and procedures.  From an organizational perspective, institutions need to develop clear roles and responsibilities for researchers and the offices (generally the IRB, IT/IT security and the sponsored programs office) involved in the development standard operating procedures to ensure that data is properly collected, stored, used, shared, achieved and destroyed. The session should be of interest to faculty, students and researchers as well as administrators.

Session Learning ObjectivesResearch Data is broadly defined as the information recorded or produced in any form or media during the course of a research investigation.  The intent of these procedures is to provide guidance on roles and responsibilities, the ethical and regulatory responsibilities for data management and best practice recommendations for creating data management plans, data collection and documentation, data processing, data sharing, data retention, data storage, and disposal as well as data transfer. Responsible data management is important in all phases of a project. It is the responsibility of the PI to provide guidance to his/her team in the methodology to be used and the team member’s role in the design, collection, analysis and interpretation, maintenance and dissemination of the results from the data.
