This roundtable will discuss the importance of ethics and archives in the contemporary world. Contemporary research touches on issues of respect and ownership of collected raw data and information. Moreover, the digital environment facilitates storage of, and access to research data conveniently through different online platforms. As these technologies improve, there is an increasing need to be more aware of the different ethical issues in the recording, handling and preserving of culturally sensitive data collected through field research.
