Do I need consent from research participants to deposit data in a data repository?
Yes, to deposit data collected from human research participants, you must have their consent as well as approval from the MRU Human Research Ethics Board. This applies to both open and restricted datasets. If you plan to make your dataset open, participants must be given the choice to opt out of the open dataset, separate from their consent to participate in the research. Participants should also be informed about anticipated secondary uses, including who will have access to the data and what type of research it might be used for.
