## The problem

***"Shared data should as open as possible and as closed as necessary"***.

Working out how to appropriately share data requires the navigation through various lines of guidance and legislation, notably GDPR. This is a complex process which is discipline and institutionally specific.

19
Individual researchers and Principal Investigators would benefit from a single resource which can be worked through to inform their decisions when preparing to share data.

## The solution
Cassandra Gould van Praag's avatar
Cassandra Gould van Praag committed
22
We are developing a flow chart which researchers can walk through to address the question "Can I share my data on the [WIN XNAT Open Data server](https://open.win.ox.ac.uk/pages/open-science/community/Open-WIN-Community/docs/tools/data/)?".

*Working through this flow chart will aid researchers in designing their projects and conducting the necessary stages of data preparation in order to share their data without compromising their ethical and legal obligations to participants and research funders.*

## What are we doing?

The Open WIN Steering Committee have been working to delineate the stages a researcher should (and in some cases *must*) go through in order to share their data in accordance with University of Oxford Best Practice and GDPR.

We are now opening this work up to the community to provide feedback on bottlenecks, missing guidance and further refinements.

This consultation will start by inviting a small number of researchers (with a range of data types) to comment on the proposed guidance. Notes from these consultation meetings are shared below.
