Consent, Data Sharing and Data Reuse
Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Research involving humans requires multiple approaches to protect participants’ anonymity. If you are planning to (or are required to) share your human subjects’ data outside of your original project team, or plan to re-use data you collected previously for a new research project, you will need to design a consent form/consent protocol that properly addresses these situations. Sponsored by Perkins Library. More information & registration.

Retractions in the Scientific and Social Scientific Literature
Monday, April 3, 2017
3:00 - 4:30

This workshop will discuss the burgeoning phenomena of retractions in the scientific and social scientific literature. No one plans to have an article retracted, so we will cover what to do to avoid a retraction and language the existing editorial literature can offer if you do find yourself dealing with a retraction as an author or one of a group of authors. We will look at retraction notices, notices of withdrawal, errata, statements of editorial concern and other forms of announcement and notification used in journals. Participants will also learn how to find actual notices of retraction, where in databases and journals these statements may reside and how to decipher some of the coded language around articles that are in the process of being withdrawn. More information & registration.
