Online Data Horror Escape Room

It is an online escape room game that engages researchers with the principles of research data management (RDM). The game is a collaboration between Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (Lena Karvovskaya and Elisa Rodenburg), Leiden University Libraries (Joanne Yeomans), and Eindhoven University of Technology (Anne Aarts and Bart Aben).The room we created consists of six tasks related to the following data management topics: FAIR data, personal data, data archiving, data transfer, persistent identifiers, and metadata.

Dilemma Game

Like in any profession, scientists are frequently faced with dilemmas: Can I exclude particular observations from my research? Can I use exactly the same data set for multiple papers? Should I agree on a colleague being a co-author on a paper to which she has not made a significant contribution? The Dilemma Game confronts researchers with difficult dilemmas in the context of a critical dialogue, supporting them in further developing their own 'moral compass'. For years, the Dilemma Game was played as a card game, but in 2020 the game has been digitalized. The Dilemma Game app now allows researchers to use the game anytime, anywhere, on their own, or together with peers and colleagues.

Virtual Games Workshop

This workshop was a chance for research support staff to learn how they could design their own games using the Python programming language. The workshop used the case study of a game to help raise awareness of research data management, but the method would have applications in many differenttraining scenarios.

Games for research support professionals, Research Data Management awareness raising (starting with Python).

A copyright game of snakes and ladders

The aim of the game, as with the traditional snakes and ladders, is to be the first player to reach the finish square, 100, by moving across the board, following the numbers from base to top, right and left and so on.

Snakes and Ladders Cards As the game progresses, players will encounter a series of different scenarios that illustrate current issues in licensing, OERS, and copyright. If the scenario described in the card is covered by licensing or copyright(Ladder cards), the player advances to the square at the top of the ladder. If the scenario described is not covered by licensing or copyright (Snake cards), the player will be sent back down the snake to the square at the tip of the snake’s tail. In either case, the player should describe the scenario to the other players before advancing up the ladder or down the snake.Replace the card face up next to the pile.

The Publishing Trap

The Publishing Trap is an exciting new board game which helps research students, early-career researchers and the wider academic community to learn about and discuss the importance of copyright literacy in relation to academic publishing and scholarly communication.

Copyright Guide at the University of Sussex

Copyright gives legal protection to the creators of certain kinds of work so that they can control the way they may be exploited. Copyright law in the UK is governed by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, as amended. Under the Act, copyright subsists in the following works:

  • Literary works, which includes song lyrics, tables, street directories and letters as well as literature in the more commonly accepted sense of the term. Computer programs are also included in the category of literary works.
  • Dramatic works, including dance and mime.
  • Musical works.
  • Artistic works, including graphic works, sculptures, maps, photographs (irrespective of artistic quality), architecture and works of artistic craftsmanship.
  • Sound recordings.
  • Films, including videos.
  • Broadcasts, including cable programmes.
  • Published editions, i.e. the typographical layout of a literary dramatic or musical work. So, the content of a recently published edition of a work written many years ago could be out of copyright, but the 'typographical arrangement' would not.
