Our goal for the Caltech Ownership of Research Information survey was to understand current practices around research information so that we might produce guidance on best practices and assist Caltech researchers in navigating vendor interests in university research information. The linked report represents our analysis of the survey results, the concerns we have identified for data and code produced at Caltech, and our recommended next steps in addressing these issues. It has been reviewed by administrative offices on campus, including the Office of Technology Transfer and Corporate Partnerships, the Office of the General Counsel, and Research Administration. The report reflects the input and concerns of these offices. The Caltech Ownership of Research Information report represents our analysis of the survey results, the concerns we have identified for data and code produced at Caltech, and our recommended next steps in addressing these issues. 

Watch our Research Information Town Hall from April 15, 2021 where we discuss the findings of the Caltech Ownership of Research Information survey, funder requirements for data sharing and management, and recommendations for core campus data services.
