Webinar “Data Sharing in Criminological Research: Tips and How-Tos”
Data sharing is paramount in enhancing research transparency and advancing replicability and reproducibility in criminological research. Whether you work with administrative data, qualitative data, quantitative data, or various other types of sensitive data, this webinar brings together four distinguished speakers, each sharing their experiences and insights. In this enlightening 90-minute session, we will delve into the critical world of data sharing, addressing barriers, offering practical how-tos, and exploring other key aspects.
We will discuss strategies to overcome practical and ethical challenges associated with data sharing, gain hands-on guidance, and learn about the unique nuances of sharing different types of criminological data. Whether you’re an experienced researcher or just beginning your journey in quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods research, this webinar welcomes everyone interested in bolstering the quality and openness of criminological research.

The webinar “Data Sharing in Criminological Research: Tips and How-Tos” is hosted by the European Network for Open Criminology (ENOC), a working group of the European Society of Criminology (ESC). ENOC brings together criminologists interested in open research and open science, aiming to become one of the driving forces for the promotion, training, application, and rewarding of open research practices in criminology. This working group fosters and encourages all practices that embrace openness, integrity, and reproducibility throughout the research cycle, including the collaborative working and sharing of research methodology, use and development of open-access software, making analytic code and research equipment freely available online, and publishing research outputs (e.g., articles, books, data, peer reviews, software) in open access — so anyone, from any part of the world, can view and download them without the need to log in or pay. ENOC is formed by 46 criminologists based in 13 different countries and is co-chaired by Iain Brennan (University of Hull, UK), Amy Nivette (Utrecht University, Netherlands), and David Buil-Gil (The University of Manchester, UK).
