There are many reasons why researchers may not wish to, or cannot, openly share data, including privacy, intellectual property, ethical, and commercial issues.

For further information, refer to the Research Data Management Policy and Research Ethics Policy.

The FAIR data principles promote the sharing and reuse of research data. This may include making the data open using a standardised protocol, but it does not necessarily have to be open (such as sensitive data).

However, when it cannot be open, there should be clarity and transparency around the conditions governing access and reuse.
