Ethical Questions in Open Science

Open science, the movement to open up the products of scientific research, has the potential to make biomedical research more transparent, reproducible, and equitable. However, as research practices and requirements evolve we are faced with new ethical questions around data ownership, participant consent, and paywalls. This talk will give an overview of the current state of open science in biomedical research and hopefully spark a dialogue about the ethics of practicing science in the open.

Ariel Deardorff is the UCSF Data Services Librarian and member of the Library’s Data Science Team. She teaches classes and does research on data management, open science, and reproducibility in the health sciences. She has a Master’s degree from the University of British Columbia and was previously an Associate Fellow at the National Library of Medicine.
