Research funders and publishers are ratcheting up their requirements for the management (and sharing) of research data. Open Science is the name of this game, which includes the sharing and publication of research data. In May, the EU also enacted new privacy legislation. How does all this impact your research work and data?

What can you do to ensure compliance with all the rules?
