Simple and Effective Methods for Managing and Sharing Scientific 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.

Russ Price, USU’s federal compliance manager, will be joined by Dr. Jeff Horsburgh to discuss simple and effective methods for managing and sharing scientific data. Mr. Price presents nationally on research ethics and compliance. Dr. Horsburgh, Research Assistant Professor civil and environmental engineering, is currently collaborating on 6 National Science Foundation (NSF) projects and has collaborated on 30 past projects. He has co-authored 2 book chapters and 12 journal articles. 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.

Dr. Jeffery Horsburgh is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and at the Utah Water Research Laboratory at USU. His research and expertise includes watershed, water quality, and hydrologic modeling and training; environmental management and watershed decision support systems; environmental data management and Geographic Information Systems; development of environmental and hydrologic information systems; and real time environmental data collection and dissemination. He teaches a graduate level course in Hydroinformatics that explores the study, design, development, and deployment of hardware and software systems for hydrologic data collection, distribution, interpretation, and analysis.
