My talk will briefly describe the background to the Data Audit Framework (DAF) work in Oxford to then explain how the DAF methodology was adapted and used with two research groups and a sample of datasets being made available through the Oxford University website. In addition to this, the results from the exercise and the areas where the methodology could be improved will be presented.
