Becoming a Legitimate Data Repository: When Policy and Practice Collide

Presenter 1
Libbie Stephenson

The data archive at UCLA has been operating since 1977 and disseminates publicly available data. Federal guidelines on human subjects’ protection are interpreted at UCLA to require each user of one of the public data files in the collection to file for a research review or to become certified exempt from review. Actual practices of researchers and enforcement of the Federal guidelines are at odds with this requirement. This presentation will discuss the process in which the data archive applied to become a repository of public data to bring actual practice in line with the campus interpretation of Federal guidelines for protection of human subjects. As part of the process a resource for researchers on Data Sharing and Responsible Use was developed. The resource and its attributes will be shared.
