Executive Summary

Data Sharing in Academic Collaborations and Pathways was a qualitative research project which examined this practice in six Ontario postsecondary institutions. A larger more detailed report has been produced about the transfer of data among academic institutions in Ontario. However, below is a synopsis and excerpts of highlights from the larger report. As the lead institution on the project, York University followed institutional guidelines for the tendering of the research through its Procurement Services office. Thinklounge was the successful bidder and was subsequently hired to conduct the study by the project team.
