Data Sharing and Open Access: Reflections on the Use and Re-Use of Archival Materials and the Challenges and Opportunities for International Collaborative Data Sharing to Support Learning and Teaching about Minority Communities in Myanmar
The new digital infrastructure of global academic life has transformed how academics are able to interact with each other, to collaborate and to develop co-authored research. However, when working in areas of Asia that are traditionally considered ‘source poor’ because of years of conflict that have severely restricted the accumulation of research data by both local communities and international researchers, data sharing to increase the research base is important. However, this immediately produces challenges in relation to translation and the ways in which data can be shared as a common data set. In this presentation, Dr Sadan will outline some of the ways in which she has tried to develop wider accessibility for her own research data and other resources relating to the Kachin region of Myanmar, both her own and that which has been curated orcreated by other organisations with which she has worked. This will lead to discussion of how researchers working globally on these issues may be able to bring different data sets together, to enrich not only the base of knowledge in global academia but also the resources accessible to teachers, students and researchers in local communities.
