Welcome to the second part of a webinar series on good data management. Learn more about the principle of public access and who can access data as well as other research material.
The Swedish constitution states that the public has the right to transparancy and access to information (i.e., official documents) from the state and public agencies (offentlighetsprincipen). Not all researchers are aware that working at a Swedish university means they have the same legal and ethical responsibilities as employees at other public agencies and institutions.
In this webinar, you will learn more about these responsibilities, not least in your everyday work within science (such as that you are supposed to retain files and documents and keep them organised). We will explain what official documents (allmänna handlingar) are, whether they always have to be made available to the public, and how you should manage the documents that your research generates. There will also be time for discussion.
Speakers: Patrik Spånning Westerlund and Maria Sjölund (SLU Archive), Henrik Leffler and Simon Åkerblom (SLU Legal affairs) and Hanna Östholm (Data Management Support).
This autumn, SLU employees are invited to a webinar series about good research data management practices. Take the opportunity to hear about the following topics:
