Joint FORCE11 & COPE Research Data Publishing Ethics Working Group Recommendations


The increase in research data-sharing practices has highlighted a growing number of ethical challenges related to the sharing and publication of datasets. In order to support the stakeholders involved in the publication of research data, the FORCE11 Research Data Publishing Ethics Working Group, in collaboration with Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), has developed recommendations toward best practices for handling ethical cases related to the sharing and publication of research data. The recommendations posted are available together as PDF "Recommendations for the handling of ethical concerns relating to the publication of  research data" or broken apart by categories of considerations. Each include background information, examples, and recommended workflows for cases that may arise during the review & publication processes or post-publication.
