To extend the metaphor into unsavoury territory one can only imagine the images for data archiver, the output publisher/editor, peer reviewers and readers.  And an auditor… Ewww On that pleasant note, have a great weekend!

Does your research project live up to its title and recruitment material?  If not it isn’t a question of betrayal and perhaps someone out in the community steering people away from your institution’s research. Aggrieved potential participants can and do complain, and there will be a prima facia case for you to answer.

Like most of Don’s work, this chuckle should prompt an important reflection. Do you have a robust plan for your research data?  Does it include:

  1. Data backup and disaster recovery?
  2. (If it is personally identified, sensitive, commercially valuable or otherwise risky) Involve storing the data in a coded form separate from the code key.
  3. Access control/privileges
  4. Discussion about
    1. Data transport
    2. Ethics
    3. Privacy
    4. GDPR
    5. Ownership and use
  5. Metadata
  6. A plan with regard to retention and disposal

A recruitment method might be faster and more effective (e.g. If 6 colleagues work together).  But is it superior and ethically superior?  If that depends on who you ask, then you probably should conclude it isn’t.
