Research Support Services for HSC

A guide for HSC researchers to learn about where to go for support, and how the library's services are embedded within the broader research lifecycle.

Data Sharing

Related to, but distinct from, general dissemination of research results are professional norms and sponsor requirements to share data generated from the research. It is expected that data from research conducted at an academic institution will be made available to the scientific community upon request or via a publicly-accessible web site. It should be noted that data are usually considered to be owned by the University, but the Principal Investigator (PI) of the project may determine when the data may be shared, considering the timing of scientific publications, patent filings, sponsor requirements, and other factors related to ongoing research in the lab. During all activities involving the handling of data, data privacy and security requirements should be fulfilled and best practices followed.
