    About the Seminar

    In an age when text, images, video and audio can be copied and remixed at the click of a mouse, understanding how Intellectual Property Rights, such as copyright and patents, may affect the process and outputs of your research, is both an important and complex task. One the one hand, the spread of digital research tools has made huge amounts of new kinds of data accessible to the scholarly community and made it easier than ever before to share, alter and set these data in new contexts for different audiences. The culture of exchange and collaboration around scholarly data is affected, though, by the shifting boundaries between what is published and unpublished and the recent passage of legislation such as the 2010 Digital Economy Act, specifically designed to protect creators' rights in digital works.

    Speakers:
      Andrew Charlesworth (University of Bristol School of Law)

What does the Freedom of Information Act mean for Research? (16 Feb 2011, Cambridge)

Managing Performance Data and Documentation: a free Incremental seminar at University of Glasgow


    The event brought together researchers and performers working in the live and performing arts across the UK, to inspire and provide guidance for better management of their research data.

    The morning speakers were audio recorded so their case studies could be heard by people who couldn't attend. Slides (some with audio) are available below. Short videos were also created.

    In the morning session, a panel of researchers and artists from across the UK shared inspirational case studies about how they tackled their data management challenges. Research in the live and performing arts produces interesting and varied types of documentation and data, including text, images, audio and video. On 17 February 2011, we brought together researchers and performers working in the live and performing arts across the UK, to inspire and provide guidance for better management of these materials.
