Data in the Research Enterprise:
If publication is the coin of the realm, then data is gold!

Dr. Lance Seefeldt will discuss data acquisition, ownership, use and sharing in the research setting. He is a Professor of Biochemistry, and has co-authored nearly 90 publications. He will draw from his experiences in scientific collaborations to discuss the development, management and sharing of data.

Russ Price, USU’s federal compliance manager, will be joined by Dr. Lance Seefeldt to discuss data acquisition, ownership, use and sharing in the research setting. Mr. Price presents nationally on research ethics and compliance. Dr. Seefeldt, professor of biochemistry, has co-authored nearly 90 publications. He will draw from his experiences in scientific collaborations to discuss this topic. Cases will be analyzed focusing on ethical and legal issues surrounding the collection and management of data and issues surrounding ownership and access to data.

The Research Scholars Forum is presented by the Office of Research and Graduate Studies. It is an interactive learning experience associated with the Research Scholars Certification Program, providing an in-depth look at record keeping, data ownership and data management. It is an integral part of Responsible Conduct of Research training that begins with the Research Scholars Orientation held each fall, and it will be of interest to every graduate student and postdoctoral fellow that plans to publish research or other scholarly work.
