Data handling for Master's Students in Special Needs Education
- Notify your project to NSD if your project will process personal data
- UiO has an agreement with the national archive and center for research data, NSD. All research projects, including Master's theses, that will process personal data must be notified to NSD for an assessment of privacy. The notficication form is availble here. Notify your project well before data collection starts, at least 30 days in advance. You must wait for the approval from NSD before you can start collecting data. When notifying your project, register your supervisor as the project manager of your project. (If you have an external supervisor, register Renée Speyer, who is responsible for the subject SNE4390 Master's Thesis, as the project manager.) In some cases NSD asks students to also register contact information of the Data Protection Officer at UiO. The name and contact information of the Data Protection Officer is available here.
- When your project is approved by NSD, it will be registered in the NSD's project archive. The project archive is constantly updated, and contains all information about your project. Any changes to your project must be notified to NSD.
- If you are to use medical data in your project, your supervisor must in addition apply for an ethical pre-approval by the Regional Committees for Medical and Health Research Ethics (REK).
- Make sure to handle personal data in a secure and lawful manner.
- Make sure to store your data in line with UiO's storage guide
- Together with your supervisor, you must classify your research data: Are they green, yellow or red data? When you have classified your data, you must store them in compliance with UiO's data storage guide.Only green data can be stored freely on a private device. Yellow data can be stored on a private device under certain conditions that you can read about here. If you have red data in your project you can ask for access to the department's storage space in UiO's Services for Sensitive Data (TSD). If you and your supervisor have evaluated that you need to store your data in TSD you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for access.
- Notify NSD when your project is completed
- Notify NSD when the project ends and inform them about what will happen to the research data upon completion of the project. The projects ends when you graduates.
