Data Management

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


In this half-day workshop, we will cover ethical and technological issues in working with audio and video digital materials (as well as, digitizing existing analogue data). Ethically, recording people as they go about their activities, whether that’s as mundane as making a phone-call or as sensitive as giving/receiving bad news in a medical consultation, places a burden of responsibility on researchers to manage the data securely. We will address how best to manage these responsibilities before, during and after data collection. The real advantage of recorded data is that (with consent) it can be shared with others to illustrate analytic claims in ways that are more compelling than transcription alone. However, as researchers, we are also obliged to manage the inherent risk that our participants’ anonymity will be undermined. We will therefore discuss how to clip and anonymise data.
