Webinar - Challenges of managing qualitative data: Stories from the trenches

CGIAR’s Information and Data Management Community of Practice has been a global resource to help effect best practices in data management. One of the challenges we face relates to managing qualitative data (audio, images, videos as well as surveys containing sensitive and personally identifiable data) with regard for openness and FAIRness. There are also questions on how to capture, store and share such data responsibly.

In that context, we invited researchers managing qualitative data to hear from their experience and to open the discussion on this topic at the CGIAR level.

00:00:57 – Introduction by Olatunbosun Obileye

00:02:35 – The perspective of the data collector by Gundula Fisher

00:10:26 – Stories from the help desk by Florio Arguillas

00:18:06 – The perspective of the data manager by Nilam Prasai and Indira Yerramareddy

00:29:15 – Panel discussion
– 00:29:15 – What about country-specific or regional regulations we need to negotiate?
– 00:31:05 – What could be the implications of the EU General Data Protection Regulation for CGIAR especially in terms of qualitative data sharing?
– 00:33:15 – How can we increase data security for qualitative data?
– 00:39:00 – Have CGIAR data managers engaged with qualitative researchers on a direct and continuous basis (for instance by building committees or working groups) and if yes, what are their experiences?
– 00:51:15 – Qualitative data reuse concern: According to Walters (2009), data will lose value without the knowledge and expertise of the researchers who designed and implemented the original research project, and prepared, and analyzed it. How can we address this concern in CGIAR?

00:54:45 – Q&A
– 00:54:50 – How can the authenticity of qualitative data be preserved especially when transcription and/or translation is involved? – Olayemi Oluwasoga – IITA
– 00:57:08 – Should CGIAR invest in a secure IT platform for research on sensitive data? Researchers should then sign a data agreement and get some ethics clearance of some sort when wanting to reuse the data? – Marie-Angélique Laporte – Alliance Bioversity International-CIAT
– 1:11:25 – Data protection laws often require data to be used for a specific purpose than to be deleted when this purpose has been met. CGIAR has been rather lax in terms of ethical review and data protection in the past. So, we have historical datasets where we did not specifically ask for permission to retain data for other use, so we need to delete these data to be in line with EU GDPR rules? i.e. we have historical issues with informed consent – Peter Steward – ICRAF
– 1:15:48 – Would it be possible for CGIAR to have an infrastructure where researchers spread across the globe put their data centrally in a secure way? – Olatunbosun Obileye – IITA

– Olatunbosun Obileye is the Institutional Data Manager at IITA. He leads the team responsible for data management plans, preservation, curation and governance, open access/open data, and research data repository management.

– Florio Arguillas is a Research Associate at the Cornell Center for the Social Sciences. He trains researchers on the use of qualitative data analysis software packages and serves as consultant and lecturer on qualitative research methods, design, collection, management, tools, and analysis.

– Nilam Prasai is a senior data curator in IFPRI’s Communications and Public Affairs Division. She provides support for research data management and publishing data at IFPRI. She is also involved in setting up policies, protocols, and procedures for research data governance.

NB-IoT and LTE-M Will Be the Backbone Communication Network for IoT in UAE

Today, LPWAN has cellular (licensed band) and non-cellular (unlicensed) technologies. Under the cellular category we have NB-IoT and LTE-M and in unlicensed, the popular categories are LoRa (Long Range) and SigFox (IoT Technology company and it uses the SigFox protocol). LoRa and SigFox need communication gateway which aggregate IoT sensor data to the IoT platform through their own private networks. NB-IoT and LTE-M don’t need communication gateways and hence it is cost effective.
