Accessing Sensitive Datasets: Workshop for Qualitative Researchers

Are you a social science researcher interested in accessing or sharing sensitive qualitative datasets and helping shape research ethics training and access to research data for academics, HDR students and other researchers?

SOCEY is currently working on the multi-institutional national infrastructure CADRE (Coordinated Access for Data, Research and Environments) project, which will develop a platform to facilitate increased researcher access to sensitive data. The platform will utilise the Five Safes Framework, which allows data custodians to assess and manage risks associated with the sharing of sensitive data.

The SOCEY team is recruiting a small number of volunteers on behalf of the CADRE team to participated in a workshop on the framework and platform. You will learn about the Five Safes and how it provides a safe framework for researchers to interact with sensitive datasets. This half-day workshop will be facilitated by the project lead and Director of the Australian Data Archive, Dr. Steven McEachern.

Current plans are to hold the workshop onsite at the University of Melbourne but may change to an online forum, depending on the emerging COVID-19 situation.
