Data sharing provides many benefits to science, researchers, and trainees. However, qualitative data sharing (QDS) is uncommon, and the often-sensitive nature of qualitative data poses significant ethical and practical challenges that must be overcome prior to sharing qualitative data.
During this presentation on Qualitative Data Sharing: Roadmap and Resources to Facilitate Responsible and Ethical Data Sharing, we discuss the outcomes of a 5-year, National Institute of Health-funded project aimed at identifying barriers and facilitating QDS. These include: a toolkit with guidelines to help research teams incorporate QDS, a web-based de-identification support tool called the QuaDS Software, and guidance from data repositories to help researchers share qualitative data in a responsible, ethical manner.
