The IFLA Academic and Research Libraries Section (ARL) Standing Committee continues its ongoing webinar series with Research Ethics in an Open Research Environment.

Please join us!!


Research ethics guide the production of scholarly inquiry the world over. While there are differences in research standards in different regions of the world, and different perspectives between different groups of people (see Australia’s NHMRC as one example), standards exist, and human subjects rules guide researchers in their work. As we increasingly move to a more open access research environment, there are considerations to tackle as we share research instrumentation, data, and published output.

Join us as we consider these issues with librarians who have already been involved in adapting practices to a new open access environment.


  • Professor Spencer Lilley, New Zealand – Topic: using an Indigenous perspective to examine issues of intellectual property, ownership of research data, where it is stored, how this impacts on participation in the research.
  • Rachel Woodbrook, United States – Topic: sharing a new online toolkit to help researchers doing diversity-related research with vulnerable populations to consider sharing de-identified research data and other research artifacts.
  • Su-Nee GOH, Deputy Director and Lead, Open Science and Research Services Team, Library, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Topic: Three lessons learned from her university’s endeavours in supporting data producers in archival and sharing of research data through infrastructures, clarifying the language, and looking into recognition.
