Working with Sensitive Data
The Digital Research Alliance of Canada has a Sensitive Data Export Group. Together, they have developed a "Sensitive Data Toolkit for Researchers" that includes:
A glossary of terms for sensitive data used for research purposes
a human participant research data risk matrix
research data management language for informed consent
This guide was created to help researchers manage the information participants provide to researchers. The focus is on personally identifiable participant information but can be applied to any type of participant research data. It identifies tools/methods that researchers can use to collect, transfer, and store identifiable participant data in ways that are ethically sound and comply with key pieces of privacy legislation [last updated January 2019].
