Abstract

In 2010, the UK Information Commissioner's made a ruling that required Mike Baillie and his colleagues to release a career's-worth of tree ring data to a Freedom of Information/Environmental Information Requestor against his wishes. In this short interview, Professor Baillie talks about the challenges of dealing with nascent FOI rules when working with research data.
