In the current political climate, opening up access to research and research data can be both a moral imperative and a careless decision that puts the lives and livelihood of the most vulnerable at risk. In this panel discussion and roundtable, three scholars will discuss the social and ethical responsibilities of gathering, curating, and sharing data from very different perspectives.
