Most research data – even sensitive data – can be shared ethically and legally if researchers employ strategies of informed consent, anonymisation and controlling access to data. Researchers obtaining data from people are expected to maintain high ethical standards and comply with the relevant legislation.
Researchers must adhere to data protection requirements when managing or sharing personal data. However, not all research data obtained from people count as personal data. If data are anonymised then the Act will not apply as they no longer constitute ‘personal data’.
The majority of Wiley’s journals enforce one of the following standardized data sharing policies:
Encourages Data Sharing
Expects Data Sharing
Mandates Data Sharing
An excel spreadsheet of all Wiley’s journals and their associated policy on data sharing can be found under the pinned items in the Yammer Research Support Group.

The benefits of cycling as a mode of transport are well documented – including saving money, improving health and a cleaner environment for all.
We’re challenging you – whether you’re an academic, in business, involved in a charity, a startup or a data enthusiast – to use Strava Metro data to develop innovative solutions to answer the question, how do we get more people cycling?
How the challenge works:
We’ll provide you with the data and the rest is up to you! Your entry could take the form of a tool, an app, a visualisation, a linked dataset, or a new piece of software to clearly demonstrate your ideas. Following the first round of judging, selected finalists will be invited to pitch their innovations to the judging panel and an audience of event attendees at a Demo Day.
. £1,000 of Amazon gift vouchers for the winner/s
