Linked Data Contracts to Support Data Protection and Data Ethics in the Sharing of Scientific Data 55-62

  • 1. ADAPT Centre, Trinity College Dubln


In light of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) [1]there are certain challenges in relation to the sharing of scientific data. For a data controller in a research institute, the requirement to monitor, implement and demonstrate conformance to the provisions of data subjects’ rights represents a major upshift in the complexity of research data management. We are trying to address the issues by analysing the details of data subject rights in GDPR followed by extending existing linked open data vocabularies. We are proposing a concept of machine-readable data protection rights contract through introducing Data Protection Rights Language (DPRL).
