    Social Science Research Data IG

    Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group
    This will be the seventh Plenary meeting of the Sensitive Data Interest Group. The IG now has a regular membership which we have fostered through regular community meetings (starting at the end of 2021 and continuing into 2023) and through development of work packages. Previous meetings of the IG have focused largely on developing a shared understanding of sensitive data through cross walking definitions of common terms. In 2023 we aim to leverage this work to progress our next stage of work focusing on sensitive data contexts. The group’s work and community meetings in 2023 are focused on researcher understandings and tools for working with sensitive data across regions. We welcome suggestions and feedback on the IG in general, proposed outputs specifically, and ideas for future outputs and activities. All are welcome, including newcomers to RDA and to the IG. Please visit our IG RDA page to see more activities from our community:

    Meeting objectives
    Click here for the collaborative session notes
    The Sensitive Data interest group first met as a Birds of a Feather in 2020, and has been a formally endorsed Interest group since January 2022. The first two years focused on identifying key challenges in the sensitive data space, and working on a shared understanding of terminology for sensitive data. In 2023 the IG is focusing on Sensitive Data classifications and protocols across regions.
    At P21, the Interest Group will share the progress on outputs that work towards answering the following questions: what classification tools are available to researchers when assessing the sensitivity of their data? How is harm conceptualised across regions? What kinds of tools are available to researchers when working with sensitive data within and across regions?
    At this meeting, attendees will:

    Hear about progress on the work undertaken so far to progress the answers to the above questions.

    Contribute to a working meeting to review this work.

    Suggest what formats would be useful for sharing this work more broadly (outputs).


    Please indicate at least (3) three breakout slots that would suit your meeting.
    Breakout 1, Breakout 2, Breakout 3, Breakout 4, Breakout 5, Breakout 6
