Abstract

This paper will discuss cases in which litigants have sought access to research data and the efforts by researchers to claim a researcher privilege. It will also discuss legally available strategies, such as certificates of confidentiality, which may provide a defense to discovery efforts. Finally, the paper will discuss the implications of these legal developments for consent forms used in obtaining participation in research studies.
