Ethics of Big Data in Practice – Lent Term Workshop Series

Organised by the Ethics of Big Data Faculty Research Group, CRASSH

During Lent Term the Ethics of Big Data group will explore the challenges of applying ethical reasoning in different contexts connected with Big Data research.

The first four case study presentations will be open to researchers by application and discussion will be conducted under Chatham House rules. If you are interested in attending please register at and express your interest with a 100 word statement, explaining how your research will benefit from participation in the session

Please note, spaces are limited and participants are encouraged to apply early to secure a place.

The term's programme will finish with a public session on 9 March where an invited panel of experts from a range of different disciplines will be invited to consider a 'mock' research proposal which brings together a variety of the challenges from the real life case studies and present their reasoning to the audience for discussion.

Open scholarship and links to academic integrity, reward & recognition

11:00-12:00 Wednesday 7th October 2015 - Milstein Room, University of Cambridge Library, West Road, Millstein Room, CB3 9DR

How is Open Access (to data, methods and findings) linked to academic integrity and research conduct? What are the correlations between citation counts and research visibility? Where are open monographs headed? Please join us for an opportunity to hear from a leading expert in the open access community, Emeritus Professor Tom Cochrane who is briefly visiting Cambridge from Queensland University of Technology in Australia. During his tenure as the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Technology, Information and Learning Support), Professor Cochrane introduced the world’s first University-wide open access mandate, in January 2004. Amongst his many commitments Professor Cochrane serves on the Board of Knowledge Unlatched (UK) is a member of the Board of Enabling Open Scholarship (Europe) and is co-leader of the Creative Commons project for which QUT is the institutional partner for Australia.

If you have some questions you would like answered please email them to or ask on the day.
